Do you care about global warming? Would you like to discover how to safe resources in your everyday life? Then we can offer the perfect summer programme to you!

Meet students from around the world and experience an exciting workshop and excursion programme around sustainability topics at the Intercultural Green Summer Session in Bremen. Learn about things like climate change, upcycling and alternative energy and discuss with your fellow camp participants what sustainability means to you. Together you will get an international perspective on global challenges. In cooperation with your camp counselors you will acquire approaches to do a small project back home, to implement sustainable actions into your everyday life and to pass your knowledge to interested persons.

You will also get the chance to learn more about the different cultures of all camp participants. For this matter we organise intercultural learning reflections. No need to say that there will be a striking leisure programme too.

Take home incitements and hands-on experience on how to live your life in a more sustainable way, lots of intercultural knowledge and new international friendships!

  • Introduction to the topic of sustainability
  • Workshops on energy, consumption and nutrition, carbon footprint, nature protection and other sustainability topics
