  • Description

    Hello there, I am Øystein (Austin) from Norway!

    After 13 years of school, I want to do something meaningful before heading off to university (Biology). I have always been curious, and I love to learn. By experiencing new cultures and learning new skills, I believe that it will shape me for the better. If I can be helpful at the same time, it would just mean double the pleasure.

    I would like to visit small farms and villages to experience the country life, whilst being surrounded by nature. Staying with a community to learn more about the communal lifestyle and how to live a simpler life is also something I want to do. Along the way I hope to learn new crafts and skills, and how to live a more self-reliant and sustainable life.

    I love learning about and connecting with nature, so I am especially interested in eco-projects, sustainability and farm-related stuff. Education should, in my opinion, be available to all, and most importantly children. I have no experience in teaching, though I would happily do my best if I were put to it.
