Opportunities around the world

Refugee camp, The Jungle, Calais; looking for Permaculturalists who have been, are there, or are going.

Dear PA members,

Has anyone/groups done any work with the refugee camps in Europe?

I am planning to go to volunteer in the Jungle at Calais and have been reading a lot about the problems there. Food poverty, waste and sanitation issues, rats and have been wondering if permaculture has been an approach used there or at any other camps before?

I recently came back from Hong Kong where I did my PDC. Previous to that, I was WWOOFing in New Zealand and Australia for 3 years.
