-Work with hands-on activities and let the youngsters experience that the alternative ways are not that difficult.

-Starting travelling by train to the hosting partner and doing practical workshops about recycling, DIY, … while hiking in the nature. After the project they know how to act according the 5 P’s of sustainability and they are ambassadors of the project.
