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. We will decide in June, if we can foresee a travel period for 30 lucky new Yoalins in September. 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 Facebook, Instagram and here about this year’s alternative activities and next year’s edition.
Thank you all for your understanding and stay safe!
