Eco Summer Camp for Young People

From Wild Consumption to Responsible Engagement


What is our position on the global changes that challenge us today in economy, politics and the environment? How can existing resources be used sustainably? What social and political solutions are we looking for and do we want to implement? What changes in daily life are needed? These are just some of the questions that are of concern to us and that we want to get to the bottom of. 

Over 40 young adults are attending, and a dozen experts and scholars will animate these days.With our one-week academy, young people, who are our future decision-makers, can exchange ideas with experts and like-minded people at eye level. These fruitful encounters will contribute to advancing the ecological-spiritual transformation of our society.
