In order to promote the European Year of Youth 2022, we joined in and organised an eco-friendly hiking event for youngsters in Vienna, Austria.

On September 3rd, volunteers from ACTIVE implemented a hiking event in Vienna, inviting young people, especially migrants, foreigners and people interested in meeting new peers. The aim of the event was to promote #EYY2022, raise awareness and create opportunities for young people to participate in eco-friendly outdoor activities and get informed about the impact of their actions of the environment.


The event consisted of a 10 km hike in the areas Hameau and Dornbach. During breaks, it was enriched with debates on current environmental challenges young people face and sharing of good practices on how to be more sustainable in everyday life, especially when doing outdoor activities.

The ACTIVE European Youth Hike was supported by OeAD – Austria’s Agency for Education and Internationalisation. It was organised in order to promote #EYY2022 and help to shine light on the importance of European youth to build a better future.

One of the main aims of ACTIVE is to give opportunities to young people and introduce them to healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We are building a community of like-minded people who enjoy being active and care about their future. The #EYY2022 was a great opportunity to promote the importance of young people in Europe and support them in active participation.
