Free retreat opportunity for 18-29 year olds interested in climate change, 12-16 APRIL 2018

Are you aged 18-29 and interested in:

* doing something about climate change?
* sharing ideas and meeting new people?
* making new & creative climate communications?
* being inspired and nurtured?

If so, then why not apply for the Climate Action Retreat in St. Gilgen, Austria, 12-16 April 2018? Travel and accommodation costs will be covered.

During the retreat you will learn more about how to communicate about climate change in creative, stimulating, exciting ways. Together with other young people engaged in climate change, and supported by multi-media professionals and scientists, you will design new climate media formats to be shared with the community as creative commons. With this retreat we aim to discover some exciting new creative methods to open up new horizons for climate change communication.

You will work with a range of campaigners and researchers as well as people who are new to the movement. This international retreat brings people from different countries at different stages of their environmental journey together to share and reflect on challenges. The programme will provide enough time for nature experience, reflection and exchange with other participants (through sunrise hikes, evening yoga etc.) to refresh and nurture our creative potential and to leave the retreat with loads of new ideas, impressions and a new network for future actions.
