Estland

Vermittlungsgebühren 150 EUR (+ Extra Fee)

 

In Estland arbeiten wir mit  ESTYES (EST) zusammen, einer gemeinnützigen, nicht-staatlichen und nicht-politischen Jugendorganisation. Sie wurde 1991 mit dem Ziel gegründet, den kulturellen Austausch und das gegenseitige Verständnis unter Jugendlichen zu fördern.


Besonderheiten:
ESTYES bietet für viele Workcamps in Estland einen Treffpunkt in Tallinn an! Um Versicherungsschutz musst du dich selbst kümmern! ESTYES bietet auch mehrere Workcamps in Kooperation mit privat geführten Biobauernhöfen an - aus Sicht von ESTYES stellen diese einen unterstützungswerten Ansatz dar, um Landflucht zu verhindern und gerade in ländlichen Regionen neue nachhaltige Impulse zu setzen. In einigen Fällen gehört es auch zu den Aufgaben der Bauernhöfe, sich um Naturschutzgebiete des NATURA Programms zu kümmern.
