Moving mountains together

In this period of global change, youth are key in the decision making process. There is a real eagerness from the younger generations to get involved for their future and for that they need opportunities to participate.

During the Moving Mountains Together Camp 35 individuals between 18 and 25, coming from each Alpine country, will get together to reflect on how they can include their expertise in the future activities of EUSALP. This international experience will allow the youth to meet, exchange and recommend actions as well as discover nature, mountains, cultures, languages and opportunities.

The camp will offer workshops on ideas of general interest such as: solidarity, climate change, mobility, sustainable economy and Alpine ressources. These workshops will be integrated with outdoor activities, meetings with local partners and interactive debates.

All of this to move mountains together!

The camp Schedule
The first Moving Mountains Together camp will be held from the 23rd to the 29th of August 2020
  • Welcome to Chapelle-des-bois

  • "Break the ice" evening

    We must focus on how to communicate and facilitate the team work in a multi-language group with a public who’s still in a language-learning process. This will be very challenging and this "break the ice" evening will be a beginning. Our first objective will be to raise the feeling of being understood and to understand in a foreign language to trigger a certain ease of taking part in a debate in an international group. We believe that the first step of a learning process is to take a certain pleasure to practice and to learn.

    We will organise games in all the 4 alpine languages and start learning a bit more of each group member language.
