Environmental Amabassador Program
With our scholarship program “Wisdom Seekers – Knowledge Keepers” we want to give young people regardless of their financial situation the opportunity to experience nature conservation directly with enthusiasm. On the expedition, they can experience the previously protected areas up close and thus form an opinion about our nature conservation concept. Thanks to the support of scientists and local guides, the environmental ambassadors discover the unique flora and fauna of North American wilderness in their own research projects.
In exchange with elders and First Nations youths, they learn about their way of life with nature. After the expedition, the scholarship holders inform the public through lectures, media reports and exhibitions. As passionate ambassadors, they activate many thousands of classmates for their environmental commitment. Most of the environmental ambassadors will stay with us for a long time and contribute to inspiring ideas in a variety of ways in the work of Wilderness International.
