Active Citizens Camp is a platform for youth leaders.
During the camp you will learn about successful sustainable social initiatives, exchange experiences with more than 40 activists, and apply your leadership skills in practice: organising a team-based project for your community. We will be there to help with the planning and to provide advice about communications, fundraising, PR and more.
