Volunteers in Parks international
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Oct 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werratal Nature Park is an institution of Thuringia. The nature park management (location of the volunteers) is Fürstenhagen, a small village in a rural area. Staff consists of five permanent staff and seven rangers that are supported by interns and volunteers. The main activities of the nature park are public relations and environmental education, species and habitat protection and regional development, which also includes the development of a sustainable tourism. The volunteers are mainly involved in the preparation and implementation of environmental education activities involved (care for children and youth groups, camps with young people). Objectives include that the volunteers can develop openness and understanding of environmental protection activities and habits outside their own country, that their use contributes to the promotion of tolerance in the region (through contact with the local population and public display of their use), and that the volunteer with his/her cultural background to the natural park openes new perspective on current activities and enriches his work with new impulses.
