Über das Programm

The Issue

In countless coastal and mountainous regions, the fragile balance of our environment remains at risk due to insufficient protection. That's where volunteers come in, playing a pivotal role in ensuring the sustainability of these precious natural habitats. 

By joining our dedicated team, you become a driving force behind the preservation of our environment, marine ecosystems, and oceanic life. Your contribution isn't just valuable - it's indispensable. 

We don't just offer volunteering opportunities. We empower you to make a difference and learning Spanish at the same time. Engage in hands-on volunteer projects, from community development to environmental conservation, and see the immediate impact of your efforts while improving your language skills.

The Goal

The core focus of this program is to engage in informational, awareness-raising, and educational efforts aimed at inspiring individuals to proactively participate in driving change. We aim to elevate collective consciousness regarding the actions each of us can take to make a meaningful contribution, with the ultimate goal of addressing and reducing our environmental impact.


What you'll be doing 

You might expect to work in the following fields:

Beach Cleanup

Picture pristine beaches, free from the blight of litter and waste. With your help, we're on a mission to remove kilos of trash, restoring these picturesque shorelines to their natural beauty. Together, we'll create inviting sanctuaries for both humans and wildlife alike. Beyond the visible transformation, your efforts contribute to a hidden gem—the quality of sea water. By removing trash and waste from these environments, we're taking significant steps toward purer, healthier oceans. Cleaner waters mean thriving marine life and a brighter future for generations to come.

Some of the specific tasks volunteers will be asked to do include collecting rubbish with gloves and tools provided. There is also the task of separating the waste according to whether it is plastic, organic, or glass. Afterwards it is important to carry out a report and keep logs of the projects and activities carried out each day. Collection of evidence via photos and videos to publish on social media and further social awareness is also key, as well as the specific separation of lids/caps from bottles and containers are also necessary, in order to support solidary causes and prevent mixing with other incompatible plastics.


Once we are in the meeting point  we split into pairs, materials are distributed and we begin to collect rubbish. The coordinator will give information about the area and explore to find where the greatest accumulation of rubbish and waste is, as well as designating an objective in terms of quantity of rubbish or bags filled to reach during the excursion. Once collected, the rubbish is examined and separated while one of the volunteers creates the report. The programme, including travel, takes roughly 4 hours per day.  You will make a significant impact on environment 


Mountain Conservation

The mountains are nature's guardians, but they need our help too. Join us in clearing the mountains of debris, ensuring these elevated ecosystems remain pristine havens for countless species. By doing so, you're helping maintain the delicate balance of nature

Education

Enlighten individuals about pollution and empower them with knowledge about the actions they can take to enhance and eliminate pollution through their own efforts.

Spanish Courses

Our Bilbao intensive Spanish courses (2 weeks, 20 hours per week from 9.3'0 to 1.30 pm Mon-Fri) focus on the core elements of language acquisition: oral comprehension and communication, reading, and writing. You'll gain well-rounded proficiency. Forget dry textbooks! Our lessons come alive with lively discussions, engaging projects, role-playing, and stimulating homework. Learning Spanish in Bilbao has never been this dynamic and fun! Our seasoned teachers are your dedicated mentors, here to support you every step of the way on your Spanish learning journey. With their expertise, you'll fully embrace Bilbao and all it has to offer.

What to bring

To ensure you're fully prepared for your upcoming adventure, we highly recommend bringing along some essential gear and materials. These items will not only enhance your comfort but also contribute to the overall success of your experience: 

  • Raincoats

Clothes must be casual and comfortable.

For participation in the programme it is of vital importance to be committed, punctual, flexible for different tasks, and above all to have a proactive work attitude. We recommend the use of comfortable, worn shoes, as they are likely to get dirty and wet, as well as a raincoat and comfy, old clothes, for the same reasons.

Über die Organisation

Instituto Hemingway is a worker-run service cooperative that works the local network of NGOs, associations and social enterprises with international volunteers.

Lerne deine Organisation kennen


Our vision is to promote international volunteerism, local associations and social enterprises by strategically matching international volunteer with local talents and creative thinking. Our goal is to function as a hub of innovative ideas and projects that can have a positive impact on Bilbao and the surrounding region. To that purpose we are constructing a community of social innovators - an international network that combines the energy and passion of volunteers from all over the world with the knowledge and skills of local NGOs, associations and social enterprises.

Volunteers work with the International Bilbao Network to support the causes of many Bilbao associations, NGOs, and public schools. Our local partners are committed to fostering social inclusion – in particular with regard to children at risk and migrants – as well as promoting local cultural heritage, English language,  animal care and environmental protection. The different organisations are committed to fostering social inclusion – in particular with regard to children at risk, migrants and homeless – as well as promoting local cultural heritage, English language, and environmental protection.

We are located in downtown Bilbao, just a few meters from  Gran Via in the historical centre. Instituto Hemingway is hosted in a 19th-century building across two floors and a rooftop terrace with a panoramic view.
