Global activist

Trip to Nepal and Europe

Do you want to learn more about global issues and find out how you can contribute actively in building a more sustainable planet? As a global activist you will get a deeper insight in what actually influences our world, and how you can contribute in making it better by being yourself. In the spring semester you will plan and go on an exciting but sustainable trip to Europe.

In the Global activist class at Kristiansand folkehøyskole, you will participate on a long and exciting journey to Nepal. Projects of Stromme Foundation (Strømmestiftelsen) are the basis for the trip. We will visit and contribute in projects they collaborate with, and experience breathtaking scenery and exciting culture.

In Global activist you will:

  • Work with exciting projects
  • Learn about how providing help benefits and how you can help
  • Experience mountainous Nepal, its nature and culture
  • Learn about religion, peace and reconciliation
  • See great scenery and amazing wildlife

  • Get to know and learn new things and meet interesting people
  • Learn about cross-cultural understanding and communication
  • Learn how we can we talk, understand and like each other when we think so differently in the world?
  • Learn about environment, development and sustainability

We work with Strømmestiftelsen in Kristiansand, visit their projects, and will be raising money to one or several projects they are working with.
