Yoalin (Youth Alpine Interrail)

The pandemic is permanently changing our travel behaviour, according to many sources. Setting off for distant worlds has become more difficult, but there is a noticeable trend towards more regionality and sustainability. The "Yoalin" project has been working on this since 2018 and encourages people in the Alps to explore their immediate surroundings more consciously - using public transport.

Many young people in the Alps know distant countries better than their immediate surroundings, as flying is often easier and cheaper. CIPRA International and CIPRA's Youth Council (CYC) is therefore committed to climate-friendly, more conscious and more affordable travel in the Alps. As co-initiators of the pilot project "Youth Alpine Interrail" (YOALIN), they are taking a huge step towards this goal. The member of the CYC Magdalena Christandl sums up the common vision: "We want to make sustainable lifestyles and particularly climate-friendly travel mainstream, only in this way can we preserve the nature and beauty of the Alps also in the future".

YOALIN is a project of the CIPRA Youth Council and CIPRA International, promoted by the signatory States of the Alpine Convention. It is financially supported by the Swiss Federal Office for Spatial Development, the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK), the the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection, the Slovenian Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning and the Liechtenstein Office for the Environment.
