Erasmus+ Training in Germany: Group Leading in Environmental Projects

Are you interested in nature protection and international voluntary service? Would you like to lead an international Workcamp in an environmental protection project yourself? Then join us in the Erasmus+ training course "Group Leading in Environmental Projects", which we are organizing in May 2024.


18th-23rd May 2024


The training takes place in the Jugendbildungswerkstatt in Kell am See (near Trier).


The group house in Kell am See is wheelchair accessible. Please contact us in advance if you are a wheelchair user so that we can plan excursions and pick-ups accordingly.

What is this training about?

The main question of this training is: How do I lead an international group? We will have workshops on group processes, how to deal with conflicts and your individual leadership style. In addition, we will discuss topics such as environmental education, ecological sustainability and climate justice, as well as many practical tips and tricks for organization and everyday life with larger groups.

Here you will get to know other motivated volunteers who would also like to lead Workcamps in nature protection, as well as the people behind IBG. Experienced team leaders give you insights into 'their' Workcamps and tell how they overcame challenges or conflicts. The training is primarily intended for prospective Workcamp leaders.




The participation fee is 50€, accommodation and meals are of course included.
