If this sounds interesting to you, apply for the
Climate Action Retreat in St. Gilgen, Austria, 12-16 April 2018
Travel & accommodation costs will be covered
About the retreat
During the retreat you will learn more about how to communicate about climate change in a creative, stimulating, exciting manner.
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 apply creative, interactive, out-of- the-box methods to open up new horizons for climate change communication.
The retreat will be facilitated by international NGOs and scientists: Climate Outreach, ONCA/art & environment-NGO, Climate Media Factory, the Austrian Youth environment platform and scientists from the University of Brighton, the Austrian Environmental Agency, the University of Life Sciences and Natural Resources, Vienna.
The framework program 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.
During the retreat you will generate new ways of communicating climate change and new tools to share with the community. You will work with a range of campaigners, researchers and 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.
If you want to apply, please tell us in 150 words or a short video about why you want to come, what you can offer, e.g. ideas, interests, experience, and what you would like to get out of this opportunity (participants limited to 20).
Please send your application to: Sybille.firstname.lastname@example.org
