Environmental ambassadors program

Wisdom Seekers, Knowledge Keepers

You are in the 9th-11th grade and would like to take a look at the wilderness areas that you have protected together with us? Then apply for the Environmental Ambassadors program!

Thanks to a scholarship, young people experience and explore the wilderness they have committed themselves to protecting at first hand on expedition trips. At home, as passionate ambassadors, they inspire many thousands of fellow human beings for wilderness protection and also contribute to the foundation's work in many ways.

When you listen to the silence in the rainforest, you learn to distinguish the important from the unimportant. It has become important to me that our children's children can experience this later on.
