The “Ice-Climate-Education” camp is taking place for the third time on Iceland. The small community of Húsavík in the northwest of the island is once again host to the eleven participants taking part this year.
A fourth edition of the youth camp is in the planning and will once again take place under the active support of Jack Wolfskin. The participants of this year’s camp come from six different nations – young people qualified from Germany (three), South Africa (two), Namibia, Estonia, Austria, Turkey, the Czech Republic and, for the first time, Romania.
The students were required to hand in a project on one to the following themes:
- Preserving a lifestyle
- Forest destruction means climate change
- The road from Copenhagen
The following items are planned for the Camp 2010: A lecture on climate change (Dr. Dirk Notz), a lecture on the history of whaling (Ulrich Jordan), a lecture on the rise of sea level (Kristin Richter), whale watching (North Sailing), sailing with North Sailing to Dalvik, an overnight stay in the Skeid Guesthouse, an excursion to Dettifoss and many other things. Before arriving in the camp, the students will have prepared a report in which they explain the effects of climate change in their respective countries. The participants will take part in an experimental game on the theme of climatic change during the camp as well.
As in the previous years, a diary will be written on the camp.
