Sunseed is a multifaceted project developing and experimenting with various topics from non-formal education, sustainability, biodiversity and self-sufficiency. Our departments are organised into three teams to cover all fields.
Each department runs different activities. As a volunteer or intern you can join one department to master a specific skill or experiment in different departments to broaden your learning experience.
