The Youth Exchange “Last Tree on Earth”, is a project organized by the Clube Nacional de Montanhismo Clube Alpino Português has as its main topic knowledge about forests.
Designed to be funded by the Erasmus + program, the Youth Exchange proposed as scheduled dates for April 2023. The Club Nacional de Montanhismo, is an association with more than 75 years and that develops different activities through mountaineering and climbing with all generations always connected with the protection and awareness of the environment.
With the wish to develop activities for the young generation, this application appears. In this way, the Youth Exchange “Last Tree on Earth”, aims to promote activities for the young European generations providing a set of experiences and methods of protection, creating awareness to the importance of forests in our lives. Over time, the non protection of the environment in many mountains and natural protected reserves made the forest suffer. This project appears as a way to develop forest / fire awareness and protection with activities that promote environmental protection.
With the conjunction of creativity, social spirit and obviously environmental awareness, the Youth Exchange “Last Tree on Earth” has as its main objective the creation of solution-makers and increase youth to a more active role in society of our European youth generation connected to the environment.
We intend to make an impact at a personal level, giving them the tools to increase their soft skills and disseminate it in their own cities and turn them active and alive, being actively cooperative to their community. The activities are always arranged in a non-formal learning perspective, participatory methodologies that enable participants to learn in a practical and reflective way.
This Youth Exchange also proposes the development of civic, social, creativity and teamwork skills among young Europeans of different nationalities and different cultures.
With extensive experience in sports and environment by this association, it considers that this youth exchange is the possibility to share these experiences and methods. Clube Nacional de Montanhismo Clube Alpino Português believe that this is the next step to develop a good work in protection and initiative spirit connected to environment and rural areas at local and national level and share experiences at international level.
