Building Bridges Workcamps

Workcamps are an important part of the Building Bridges campaign. There are three different types of workcamps, which can use the Building Bridges label. These are the workcamps where:

  1. Volunteers in the workcamp work directly with asylum seekers and/or refugees;
  1. There are asylum seekers and/or refugees included in the international group of volunteers (regardless of the topic of the workcamp);
  1. No activities with asylum seekers or refugees are planned, but there is a study part on the theme of forced migration.

You can find the detailed guidelines for organizing a Building Bridges workcamp and more information on the different types here.

You can also have a look on the overview of the years 2016/2017 about different projects and activities and Building Bridges workcamps.
