Alpine Climate Action

Dec 06, 2021
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).
