Workcamp in Czech Republic: Hauenstejn Castle

Volunteers wanted in the Ore Mountains

This workcamp is organized by the association Anitkomplex in cooperation with Prisecnice zije - Preßnitz lebt, Naturherberge Hammerwerk and Nadrazi Kovarska. Antikomplex seeks to prevent historical trauma from re-emerging, which can be a source of populist manipulation that is misused to achieve political ends. In their work they mainly focus on the coexistence of Czech and German culture in the Czech countries and on the reflection of this coexistence. The workcamp takes place in the Ore Mountains on the Czech-German border at different locations with three host organizations.

What are volunteers needed for?

The aim of the workcamp is to support local actors and promote sustainable activities in the region and thus to strengthen democratic structures and active participation at the border.

The work takes place in various villages in the Ore Mountains and includes activities such as whitewashing walls, painting and cutting boards, landscaping, cleaning gardens or adjacent areas, creating texts for the association, preparing cultural events for the public. The work usually takes place in the vicinity of the accommodation or within walking distance.
