EUSALP summer camp “Moving Mountains Together”

July 15 - July 20

A UIAA is sharing details of a summer camp taking place in Chalet de la Haute-Joux, Cerniebaud, France from 15-20 July.

The camp is being organise by Erasmus+, EUSALP (EU strategy for the Alpine region), the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region and Concordia.

This exchange is being organised with 7 partner organisations based in the countries concerned by the EUSALP initiative, which are the following : France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. The camp’s themes include climate change, water management, and local economy.

The organisers are looking for five participants per country, including one group leader per country. The group will therefore comprise a total of 35 participants + two facilitators from France. The target group is young people from 18 to 30 years old, from France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Group leaders can be older than 30. Participants need to be motivated and interested in the topics tackled by the Youth exchange program. Good knowledge of English language would be useful to be able to participate actively in the exchange.

The activities of this Youth Exchange – Summer Camp project “Moving Mountains Together” will be meant to create an enriching environment for the youth groups from EUSALP countries for a meaningful and fun learning experience, as non-formal education principles foresee.

The experience proposed will expect to lead young participants to :

• discuss a range of key issues relating to the reality of life for youths in the Alps. The activities will be connected to the topics of Climate change focusing on water management and Quality of life focusing on local economy.

• understand how EUSALP can open many opportunities for young people and share ideas to help shaping the future of the Alpine region thanks to youth participation ;

• share about personal experiences and find commonalities among peers from different countries, creating conditions where solidarity and cooperation are fostered and encouraged ;

The methodology (non-formal education, meetings with professionals, discussions) and the structure of the Youth Exchange will encourage an active involvement of each participant in order to develop competences and new tools for personal and social development. Non-formal education tools will be used to create a friendly and caring atmosphere, considering each participant in his or her diversity, personality and culture, so that each person can feel free to express him(her)self, share his or her experiences, teach and learn from the others.

Details on the organising bodies and how to apply can be found in the programme.

The application deadline is 30 May.
