Join our Wilderness Camp!
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity! At the end of July we will set off into the “wilderness” to discover it with all our senses. This means that we will spend 4 days / 3 nights in a remote self-catering hut in the beautiful Totes Gebirge mountains to experience nature in a unique way together with the “famous” wilderness guide Bernd Pfleger.
What do we have in store for you?
You will learn how to read animal tracks in the forest and expeirence a night alone in the open air. You’ll find out that excrement is not just excrement and how to gather together a feast of yummy wild plants. You’ll learn to notice what birds are saying and which on is flying above you… and you might even learn how to save your life: how to find your way home with the help of the starry sky. We’ll discuss why we have often forgotten all these things as humans and how we want to protect the last wild areas of Austria together. We would like to invite you to open your heart a little further for nature, to learn new things and of course to have a lot of fun with us. Maybe this will all be new to you or maybe you already have a lot of knowledge, the forest is your second home and you climb a 3000m mountain three times a week anyway? It doesn’t matter: all are welcome! We are happy if you want to join our group and spend a few days with nice people and exciting input “in the wild”.
22. – 25. July 2019 at Liezener Hütte, Totes Gebirge, Styria
Why? What is the goal?
Because we believe that “only what you know and love, you can protect”. That means, before we throw ourselves head over heels into activism (don’t worry, that will come anyway 😉), we want to set the foundation and get to know nature intensively and find our personal connection to it. In addition we will give you the opportunity to feel what being a “Wilderness guide” is like and how you can also facilitate other people`s connection to nature.
The registration is already closed.
Who are we?
We – these are Flo, Judith, Gudrun and Ari, who got to know each other through Generation Earth and in part were also protesting last year for the soul of the Alpine Campaign. The idea of the “Youth Wilderness Ambassadors” programme (YWA) was born there with the aim of bringing young adults into the wilderness and implementing projects together to preserve the wilderness in Austria.
We are looking forward to hear from you!Write an E-Mail to the team
