About this volunteer position
Suderbyn Ecovillage is a melting pot of people with a diverse range of skills and cultural backgrounds, and attempts to create a more sustainable lifestyle. This makes Suderbyn the perfect place to explore community life and learn a broad variety of skills.
This position is for you, if you are ready to explore, learn, meet new people and discover your new story. It is for you, if you want to put your hands and skills into the experimental combination of international projects, construction and natural building, organic gardening and permaculture, management and administration, local renewable energy systems, communication and research, community-building and personal development.
As an all-round Green Skills volunteer your days in Suderbyn can take many colorful forms, and be filled with a broad variety of tasks. It is a position that gives you the possibility to try out different areas and engage yourself in different domains so that you can discover new things about yourself while contributing to what Suderbyn wants to achieve. .
But be aware; living and working in Suderbyn is not only an everyday life full of new horizon-expanding tasks. Ecovillage life also implies a lot of practical work such as cleaning the compost toilets, working outside in the rain, fixing the sewage system, and whatever needs to be done to meet deadlines. We hope that you are ready to help out with the less-glamorous tasks when necessary.
You are looking for a possibility to be a part of a dynamic and lively ecovillage inhabited by a combination of volunteers and permanent residents. You are seeking new knowledge about how to create a more sustainable life and future. You have a constant hunger for acquiring new skills, and are motivated by your love of learning. Prior experience and skills can be useful, but your motivation to learn and to grow are the most important things. You are aware that community life and work is socially demanding and are open to live and work closely with people. If you are ready to embrace the diverse opportunities the community provides, and you are willing to look inwards to see what drives you, what your limitations are and what you can contribute with, we won’t ask for more. The all-round Green Skills position is for you, if you want to experience an ecovillage holistically and are ready to discover, grow and create.
