Learn to Travel, Travel To Learn.
The idea behind the Learn to Travel, Travel to Learn Program is to allow the participants to get experience and knowledge on subjects connected to Environment, Climate Change and Global Warming. The program will challenge the participants, to collect and connect all information available and take it out into the field during our different periods. The aim of the program is to create awareness of global environmental issues among our participants, so they later can spread the word on this Big Issues.
6 months, over 2 continents in around 6 countries.
Traveling with international people from all over Europe.
PRE COURSE (6 Months/Limited places)Read More
The Pre-Course is a Period previous to the Start of the 6 months Program, created by us, for our students.
We are aware of the economical situation of the world today and we are also aware of the salary level in the European Countries. For this reason, we have created a way to obtain a scholarship by working 6-9 months in Norway, Sweden, Denmark or other European countries in order for you to be able to cover up the cost of our Program. The work you will do in this period is whatever we, you and your team mates can find: dishwasher in a restaurant, cleaning, collecting second-hand clothes from collection boxes, work in a school for kids with special needs, salesperson in a secondhand shop or other jobs.... Some of the jobs we can provide, some of the jobs you and your team mates will find with support from the school. to read more about the PRE-COURSE
