If you don’t have money to start Climate Activist Programme

Saving up is a possibility

Most of our participant join what we call the Saving Up Period where you can come to the school 6 months before the program start and fundraise all the money together with your team.

In the saving up period, you would come here to the school 6 months before the programme, when you come you will have a room and also eat at the school until your activities start. As soon as your team is all here you will start to look for jobs, it can be that we already have some jobs for some of the period, but we cannot guarantee it. We want to help you as much as we can to find the jobs, but your team also have to be ready actively search for jobs. Many times there are jobs here in Denmark or the surrounding countries. Most of our students have been able to save up all the money this way. The thing you will have to be prepared for is that the jobs can be many things and some can be quite tough. Such as construction, garden farming, cleaning, driving or production. I know it might sound hard, but in many ways, this period also prepares you for when the project in St. Vincent since you will gain some experience in many ways. The idea is also you are with your team and all of you are trying to fundraise the money together not individually, which makes sure you all reach the goal together.
