World Bound Italy
Lago di Garda, Val di Sole
The leadership expedition for addressing climate change that extends beyond the physical journey and continues even after returning home.
Embark upon a breathtaking adventure in the Alps and the Dolomites. Explore a stunning yet peaceful region with pristine lakes and quaint little farms scattered among towering mountain peaks. Challenge yourself and your group to produce less than 50% of the average traveller’s carbon footprint while camping, sleeping in huts, working with shepherds, cooking Italian meals with local food and meeting with leaders in Italy’s Green Transition and Sustainable Development Goals.
This transformational experience will take you out of your comfort zone and teach you about yourself, your peers, and the world around you!
Along the way, you will create a Digital Travel Journal with the help of a professional photographer. By collecting your ideas, Indigenous & local perspectives, and direct and first-hand information about climate change, you will explore and solidify your place in our fight for a better future.
