Reflect on youth mobilities and mass tourism’s impact on society and the environment. Join us in Sumava for sports and discussions on sustainable tourism, exploring terms like climate positivity. Develop strategies to address these dilemmas with us.
Did you ever think about the social and environmental impact of mass tourism and youth mobilities and possible changes towards more sustainability?
Are you finding yourself in a dilemma between feeling unsure about the environmental impact of travelling for a training course, but your need on the other hand to get to know new topics, people and places?
Are you confused by words like climate positivity, climate neutrality and climate friendly?
If yes, join us and learn more about sustainable youth mobilities and mass tourism while going for sportive activities together (like hiking, snowshoeing etc.) in the Sumava mountains.
We are going to critically discuss approaches like climate positivity and neutrality while tackling the issue of greenwashing in travelling. Together, we will develop our own strategies to deal with these social, environmental and personal dilemmas.
Where and when?
The activity will take place from the 02nd to the 07th of January 2024 in Sumava, Czech Republic (the exact location will be shared soon).
The project’s topic and one of the goals at the same time is neutrality, therefore participants will be required to use green means of travel (train, bus, etc..), which means you should consider the need of travel days before applying. Flying will only be allowed from remote destinations where no sustainable means of transportation are available. Flying will not be accepted as a ‘faster mean’ of travelling and only if approved by IYNF.
This training course is aiming for youth leaders and youth workers as well as interested young people in this field. This activity is open for people up to 30 years of age but we are going to have very few spaces for people over 30 years.
This training course is the first activity of the yearly cycle “Re:generation – Climate positivity towards a just future”, which is funded by the European youth Foundation of the Council of Europe and the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
