Youth at the Top 2016, a beautiful experience

"Initially I thought it would have been boring... but in the end it was amazing!" Lilou and Kilian, France. Read more in the official press release below. On 12th and 13th July, for the second edition of the operation, almost 700 participants (more than 500 young people and about 150 adults) from 8 countries of the Alps and the Carpathians together saw what it was like to live as a group and share exciting moments in the mountains: an event that will long remain in their memories. In all, 37 events took place in the Alpine Arc and 4 in the Carpathians. Visit the project’s official page: the Facebook page and our Youtube channel. The retrospective video of the 2016 edition of Youth at the Top will be available this autumn.  Our thanks go to all our partners and to the young participants for making this edition a success!   "Youth at the top" is a project coordinated by ALPARC, together with Educ’alpes in France, with the special financial support of the German Ministry for the Environment (BMUB).This collective project emanates from the “Mountain Environmental Education in the Alpine Protected Areas” working group, whose driving aim is to develop links between young people and mountains.
