Youth Alpine Express

This project aims to include the youth in the Alpine region in the conversation about environmental responsibility. The project would see a group of people making their way through the alpine forests. The target groups were young people, youth workers and decision makers from different municipalities

Initial situation
The world’s water and environmental temperatures are going up and the polar ice caps are shrinking. The evidence has shown that global industry is the leading cause and by extension every living person on the planet going about their own business is contributing to the problem. Until now there has been no study which demonstrates just how much CO2 has been generated by each individual going about their day.

This project brings a group of targeted focal groups on a journey through the Alps and demonstrates the level of CO2 they emit daily through the restriction of the CO2 by installing a cap on the amount the group can produce throughout their journey. The group will document the process and then the findings will be published. The aim is to place into the public sphere a description of the amount of CO2 produced by a person and what happens when that CO2 is restricted. The logical point is in the simple fact that if people want to continue living the lives they desire, then there must be a drastic shift in how we approach energy consumption.

The innovative aspect of this project is in the experiential aspect of the conversation on climate change. Before now the focus has been on the demonstration and education of the public regarding the environment, however, this project allowed the target audience to experience the effect they have on the planet’s ecosystem first hand.
