The first “Alpine Changemaker Basecamp” will take place from July 4 to 9, 2021 in Poschiavo/CH. It offers committed people between the ages of 18 and 30 the opportunity to advance their own ideas and projects for social change and sustainable development in the Alpine region. During the camp, coached phases alternate with inputs, self-organized work, peer-to-peer units, reflection and feedback loops, events and community tasks. Interested parties can apply until mid-May 2021.

Professional support

An international team of coaches from the fields of science, entrepreneurship, crafts, regional development, philosophy and art will accompany the participants in the implementation of their ideas. The experts provide them with various tools and offer different ways of thinking and new perspectives to facilitate the implementation of the projects. After the Basecamp, a mentoring program supports participants for a year in the implementation of their projects. They also get the opportunity to present their projects in an international forum and to act as mentors for further generations of “Alpine Changemakers”.
