Dear friends,

In this special newsletter, we share with you volunteering opportunities available through GEN in communities across Europe.

All opportunities below are funded through the European Solidarity Corps (ESC), are open to young people between the ages 18-30, and include accommodation, food, and a small monthly allowance.

These opportunities represent inspiring and surely empowering pathways to begin exploring European communities, or even deepen your existing relationship with GEN!

Please feel free to share this with your friends, families and networks.

In community,

Esther, on behalf of the GEN teams

Volunteer with GEN International in Findhorn
Sustainable Skills for Ecovillage Development (SSED) invites you to become part of the Ecovillage Movement, explore the life of an intentional community and help our core work in the Global Ecovillage Network office based in Findhorn, Scotland.

This year will allow you to gain a deeper understanding of GEN both global network and organisation, offer the opportunity for you to sharpen key interests and skills in network-building, communications, education programme design, NGO operations, sustainable development, and of course, will offer a chance to become meaningfully engaged with one of the world's revered ecovillages, Findhorn.

Your working time is going to be split between the office and the community. Most of this time you are going to spend in the office working on the above-mentioned areas but you will also get the chance to get involved with the Findhorn community. 

You will live in the spiritual community and thriving ecovillage Findhorn. This community is a dynamic experiment to bring their founding principles of inner listening, work is love in action and co-creation with nature to everyday life and a vision for a better world. 

This opportunity is open to German and Portuguese nationals aged between 18-30.

We are looking for 3 volunteers from June 2019 to participate in a 12 month European Solidarity Corps placement. All accommodation, food, and travel expenses are covered.
