|WHO||Helen Storrow Seminar participants should be:|
The Helen Storrow Seminar is more than just a week in the Swiss Alps. It’s a chance to make a real difference to an environmental issue that affects your community, and to go on a journey with other young people to form a network of global change agents.
The project that you will design and carry out is the heart of this experience, and we will be selecting applicants both on how they fit the participant criteria, and on the strength of their project ideas.
You will have support before, during and after the seminar to turn your ideas into a real project, and we are looking for participants who are really motivated and inspired to make a change.
If you do not already have an idea for a project or would like to discuss your project, please contact your State Outdoors Activities Manager or the National Outdoors Activities Manager, Anne Crummy, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all other questions please contact your State International Manager or the National International Manager, Bronwyn Cole, email@example.com.
