Current information about Yoalin 2020

01/04/2020 _ Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, which is also affecting the alpine region, we have decided to suspend this year’s Yoalin edition. Thus, there will be no kick-off event and no travel period through the Alps in July and August, because we listen to science and show solidarity with people at risk and society in general. We are confident that this is the right and sensible thing to do and are sure that you understand and support this decision!

Nevertheless, we are still motivated to keep the Yoalin community alive! We are working on some alternative activities and projects that we can carry out this year while respecting the safety measures. And we hope to be back in 2021 with a full round of Yoalin. In the meantime, we will not lose sight of our goal – enabling sustainable and conscious travelling in the Alps – and hope to have you all on board to overcome these critical times together.

If you are interested in sustainable travelling, want to get to know the alpine region better and are looking to connect with like-minded people, contact us. We will keep you posted on Instagram, Facebook.

Thank you all for your understanding and stay safe!

Youth Alpine Interrail

After our meeting at CIPRA Slovenija in December some of the Yoalins decided to travel 2020 not by plane. 😍

#yoalinchallenge #letobrezleta CIPRA» Ostajamo na tleh « 🌄

Alpe je mogoče raziskovati in odkrivati tudi z vlakom – udeležencem projekta Youth Alpine Interrail je prav potovanje brez uporabe letalskega prometa omogočilo nepozabna in raznolika doživetja.

We spent an amazing day in Ljubljana, Slovenia talking about Youth Alpine Interrail 2020 and discussing with Marko Maver, State Secretary of the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, about #mobility and #sustainablelifestyles.

Thanks to CIPRA Slovenija and Ministrstvo za okolje in prostor 😀

Youth Alpine Interrail

Wir sind alle verantwortlich.
Jeden Tag haben wir die Wahl.
Bei jedem Kauf, den wir tätigen, bei jedem Schritt, den wir machen, können wir wählen.
Und jede Entscheidung, die wir treffen, auch die kleinste, ist entscheidend.
Wir sind der Verkehr, der die Luft verschmutzt, die wir atmen, wir stellen den Kunststoff her, den wir in unseren Lebensmitteln finden.
Wir sind in jedem Container, in jedem LKW, in jedem Schornstein.

Jeden Tag können wir wählen.
Auch wenn es mühselig ist, Zeit und Engagement erfordert.
Gerade deshalb brauchen wir die Hilfe von Regierungen und Parlamenten, denen wir unser Vertrauen geschenkt haben, damit sie uns bei der Bewältigung dieser Krisen helfen können.
Aber diese Krise wurde lange Zeit ignoriert und unser Vertrauen missbraucht.

Deshalb fordern wir heute die Regierungen und Parlamente nachdrücklich auf, Mut zu zeigen.
Es ist notwendig und dringend, dass sie sich entschlossen von den Wirtschaftsindikatoren lösen, die auf unbegrenztes Wachstum abzielen.
Es ist dringend erforderlich, Steuern und Abgaben einzuführen, die sich auf Branchen auswirken, die umweltschädlich sind und umweltschädliche Praktiken ausüben, damit nachhaltige Handlungsoptionen für die Bürger zuverlässiger und wirtschaftlicher sein können.

Keiner von uns kann es alleine tun, aber zusammen haben wir immer noch die Wahl, es ist noch nicht zu spät.

Each of us can choose every day.
Every purchase we make, every move we make, we can choose.
And every choice we make, even the smallest, is crucial.
We are the traffic that pollutes the air, which we are breathing, we create the plastic that we find in our food.
We are in every container, in every truck, in every chimney.

But every day we can choose.
Even if it requires effort, time and commitment.
And precisely for this reason we need the help of governments and parliaments, in which we have placed our trust so that they can help us to deal with these emergencies.
But this emergency has been ignored for a long time and our trust has been betrayed.

That's why today we strongly ask Governments and Parliaments for an act of courage.
It is necessary and urgent that they boldly disengage themselves from those economic indicators which only aim unlimited growth.
There is an urgent need to introduce taxes and duties that will affect industries that are harmful to the environment and courage polluting practices, so that sustainable options can be more reliable and economical for citizens.

None of us can do it alone, but together, yes, we can still choose, it is not yet too late.»
