25 – 28 February 2018 – Stift Göttweig
“Only when we become part of nature ourselves we can understand it.” We learned this wise quote in our third Action Leader Training. During these four days we were able to understand how many kilometres jeans travel before we buy them and how to recharge our batteries by painting a T-shirt and taking a walk. In a lecture about ressources and meat consumption we lost our desire for a steak and soya, so we had pumpkin cream soup and vegetable rice.
Of course, we also worked eagerly on our own projects and discussed the further procedures and steps. Through a lot of criticism and compliments we could help each other a lot. Thanks to Nate and Natalie, we now know how to finance and promote our project. We have also found out how to become politically active and learned a little about the historical background of Stift Göttweig.
Creativity, lots of laughter, a torch-light hike, a fantasy trip, lots of exciting lectures and good food have made this Action Leader Training an unforgettable time, like every time.
