Alpine Climate Action

[Project completed] From classic forms of political participation to creative methods of non-violent civil resistance: in four online workshops, young adults learn about a range of political engagement – and how they can use it to campaign for climate protection.

Protest movements like “Fridays for Future” have increased young people’s interest in politics. Demonstrators have demanded tougher political measures for climate protection. The “Alpine Climate Action” project is aimed at young people who are not yet politically active but who are concerned about climate protection.

In online workshops on topics such as digital mobilisation, party political participation and engagement in civil society, participants learn how to get involved politically – at municipal, regional, national or European level. Politically active peers and experts will offer them various methods and opportunities.

The project thus strengthens the Alpine-wide networks of people and initiatives who are committed to climate protection. It is also intended to lay the foundations for the organisation of an Alpine-wide climate camp.

Duration: August 2021 – August 2022

Project language: German

Funding: The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).

Climate Fresk Online Workshop: 30th of June

Raise awareness for climate change. The climate Fresk tool is a trigger for transformation and empowers participants to become informed and engaged advocates for a sustainable future. The game is particularly useful to introduce the complex problems of climate change in a fun and playful way, and can be used in youth work, school or community groups.

If you want to facilitate a Climate Fresk workshop, you need to participate in one before. The workshop is based on a 42-card game. Each card represents an element, a cause or a consequence of climate change. As a team you are to find the cause-effect relationship between the different components of climate change.
