What is it?

Youth at the Top is an international event that aims to help young people (re)discover nature and connect to their mountain heritage. It is organized through local events that take place simultaneously in different countries across the Alps and Carpathians. It has a highly symbolic dimension as hundreds of young people go out and experience nature on a single date through an overnight stay in the mountains.
Each registered organization is invited to plan a hike, an overnight stay in the mountains, an activity on the common topic “Alpine Fauna and Climate Change” and other educational activities to help the younger generation reconnect with the mountain environment. The project leaves a lot of leeway to the participating organizations to organize local events according to their goals and capabilities.
Who is the event for?
Youth at the Top is for all kinds of young people from 6 to 25 years old. Young people living in the Alpine and Carpathians valleys are highly encouraged to get involved.
