bluecamp

The bluecamp workshops provide important background knowledge on the topics of climate protection, CO2 saving and project management. But that’s not all: bluecamp is also about thinking for yourself and developing ideas and implementing them. Because knowledge alone does not change anything. Bluecamps are offered by myblueplanet as an independent climate protection organisation. Many volunteers and a network of personalities from business and society help us do this.

Who can participate in a bluecamp? We are looking for committed and motivated young people up to the age of 25. You are open to new ideas, reliable and persevering and want to make a difference. You like organising, you can inspire other people and you enjoy presenting and working with digital media – or you want to improve yourself in those areas.

Instead of dry theory, you gain knowledge through excursions, films, guided discussions, group tasks or cooking – all together with the other apprentices. Everyone brings their own topics and experiences to the workshop. This is how knowledge turns into real climate protection.

Project realisations in the last years

The aim of the bluecamp is for you to submit your projects to our partner project myclimate Energy and Climate Workshop after they have been successfully implemented, so that you can measure yourself against the innovative ideas of others. The following students did this and we are very proud that more than half of all bluesolutions were awarded!
