The summer camp is launched by Green-Light Year joint with Swedish Environmental Research Institute (IVL), which is for the 10-year-old to 18-year-old teenagers who are enthusiastic for the nature, environment and sustainable development.
Campers will obtain the following experience during the summer camp:
- An unforgettable eco-friendly Nordic tour and advanced environmental protection concept. By experiencing Swedish ecologically environmental facilities, teenagers can understand the fundamental eco-friendly knowledge, raise individual environmental protection awareness, and cultivate and promote teenagers’ leadership in environmental protection field.
- Deep friendship. In the 12-day camp, teenagers will cooperate with partners to accomplish missions and projects that can help them practice and grasp the observation, learn how to document and express themselves as well as cultivate the teamwork skills.
- Build the concept of life cycle and learn to use practical tools. Teenagers can understand what “life cycle” is and learn to evaluate the environmental influences with the life cycle theory completely, further to own a kind of systemic mindset. Also they can learn how to apply WAMPServer programs which can be applied to daily life and study (campers can own their exclusive accounts) based on LCA (life cycle assessment) practically. Besides, they will design environmental protection plans with LCA.
- Experience Nordic civilization. Campers will visit Stockholm Royal Harbor, City Hall, Swedish Farm, Helsinki Cathedral, etc, also they can walk into Swedish local families, schools, and ecological communities to experience fishing on the lake, collect blueberries in the forest, Swedish food produced personally, and meet face to face with the mayor, principals, local community residents, and Swedish students.
