Between the 6th and 9th of October, WWOOF Portugal went to Denmark to participate to the European WWOOF Coordinator Meeting. We were around 30 people representing Europe: France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the Federation itself and WWOOF USA was there too. The Meeting was held in Svendborg, at a sweet and rustic farm.
It has been 3 intense days where we spoke about the new Common WWOOF Platform, also the role and identity of WWOOF organisations. We shared about the 2030 vision (add a new “supporter member” membership for all of those people who
wish to support and be a part of WWOOF, An in house IT and PR staff or WWOOF to act as a voice and advocate for small-scale organic farmers at an international level, among many other…) and how to achieve the many goals. We exchanged and brainstormed around and for more good practices…
We had a sunny day to go to the little sweet and perfect Island called Stryno. There we visited 2 WWOOF Hosts: a wine producer and an apple Juice producer. And at night, we went to a local venue to assist to a rock concert!!
We also had such great food including the Typical herring.
And lots of fun!!
Now we are back in Portugal, full of energy and good practices to implement!
