ClimateLab: educational workshops for apprentices 

ClimateLab workshops provide important background information on climate protection and project management. But that’s not all: the ClimateLab is also about thinking for yourself, developing ideas and implementing them. Because knowledge alone does not change anything.

Dedicated and motivated apprentices up to 25 years of age can register in consultation with their supervisor.

4 good reasons for you to participate in our ClimateLab:

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.

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!

Does this all sound interesting? It is! And you can be there this year, too, if you apply! You will learn what harms the climate and what you can concretely do so that something changes. Apprentices up to the age of 25 can take part. The workshop lasts two days and costs CHF 500.


And if you want to get a taste of ClimateLab in advance: Click here for the recording of our first virtual ClimateLab with co-founder of the Swiss climate strike movement Marie-Claire Graf and sustainability lecturer Prof. Dr. Tobias Stucki from the Bern University of Applied Sciences.
