Title: Environmental Thinkers Youth Project in Upper Austria
Environmental Thinkers is an initiative of the Boy Scouts of Upper Austria. Together with the support of AVE, the province of Upper Austria, and the cooperation partners Fire Department Youth, Red Cross Youth and the Austrian military, various environmental projects were realized during the project period from January to May 2006. The starting point was a countrywide idea contest. From the submissions, a selection committee chose eight projects, which were carried out thereafter. On 20 May 2006 (Environmental Thinker Action Day) the individual groups presented their projects in Wels, Altheim and Linz. At the beginning of June the jury chose the winner.
