Youth Alpine Interrail

© Alicia Cuche

Sustainability and travel fever do not have to be mutually exclusive: The "Youth Alpine Interrail Pass" makes it possible to experience eight Alpine countries and at the same time travel climate-friendly by public transport for 50 euros. Young people between the ages of 16 and 27 can apply for the "Youth Alpine Interrail Pass" until 17 April 2019. The selected participants are invited to share their adventures on social mediaand the project's website. At the end of the summer, the best photographers and authors will be awarded.

Many young people in the Alps know distant countries better than their immediate surroundings, as flying is often easier and cheaper. 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", 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".

Youth Alpine Interrail is a project of the CIPRA Youth Council and CIPRA International, in cooperation with Eurail and promoted by the signatory States of the Alpine Convention. It is financially supported by the Swiss Federal Office for Spatial Development, the RHW foundation, the Austrian Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism, the Liechtenstein Office for Environment and the German Ministry for Environment, Nature Protection and Nuclear Safety.
