whatsalps youth

Many young people spend most of their time indoors, sit in front of the TV or the computer. The "whatsalp youth"-project lures them out. The CIPRA Youth Council, together with CIPRA International and other project partners, is implementing it.

Young adults from all alpine countries meet in Austria, France and Liechtenstein. There they meet up with the "whatsalp" group, consisting of Harry Spiess and Dominik Siegrist. Starting in June 2017, they will cross the Alpine arch from Vienna /A to Nice /F during four months, documenting the changes in the Alpine regions. Both groups will go on a few stages together and discuss topics such as the environment, alpine culture and communication. Thus, closed workshop spaces are replaced by the open, picturesque landscape of the Alps.

The young adults independently design the activities for the "whatsalp" meetings and learn to develop and implement their own projects. The CIPRA Youth Council plays a leading role: the members are responsible for the search of participants, the organization and implementation of the program and the reporting. The project "whatsalp youth" is funded by the EU-programme Erasmus +.
