The EVS project “Green Skills” is hosted by the non-profit organisation RELEARN Suderbyn, based in Suderbyn Ecovillage. The Green Skills projects are completely integrated into the local Suderbyn community. Through the Green Skills program, we want to offer international participants the possibility of experiencing our special way of life with the social, ecological, economic and cultural dimensions of an ecovillage, and to develop themselves in a more holistic way. We try to provide a complete package of healthy sustainable lifestyle and ecovillage life involving practical tasks (performed gender neutrally) such as: permaculture gardening, organic and vegetarian/vegan cooking, ecological building, animal care, and administrative work. Volunteers participate in all other issues concerning ecovillage life, such as community building, conflict resolution, administrative and organisational issues and collective decision making.
During the service there will be non-formal learning opportunities in community meetings, group discussions and workshops, along with physical work.
Greens Skills will impart theoretical knowledge and practical competences in the areas of:
- Permaculture principles and ecovillage design
- Organic gardening and sustainable food production
- Ecological construction, maintenance and renovation
- Organisational and administrative issues
Volunteers will have the possibility to develop Swedish and English by formal and informal methods.
We prefer volunteers who are highly motivated and who understand that living in an ecovillage entails practical work and a simple, healthy lifestyle. Volunteers who show an understanding of the actual conditions at Suderbyn and who have a personal motivation for learning and living in community will be selected. Everyone living in Suderbyn participates in gardening, building, cooking, cleaning, and all the other tasks that create our holistic lifestyle. We will not base our recruiting on the specific existing skills of volunteers, but rather the willingness to learn and try new things.
