I am a dreamer. I am a persistent person. I am a bright child. Overall, I am a weirdo.
I came to Denmark to study about climate change and how to develop in harmony with the nature and not against or despite it. I could become a social worker in my home country, Italy, but after volunteering as a social pedagogue for a year in Estonia, I had no choice but to keep on with this kind of life. It is a continuous battle to define myself, to strive for a change consistent with my highest dreams, and it goes along with the one of an infinite number of people touching me for a day, a month, a year, and then flowing away. It is a wonderful existence, most of the time!
Some of my hobbies are to sing, to paint, to dance, to practice martial arts and yoga. Otherwise I enjoy my time reading tons of books, traveling with friends or alone, exploring mountains and other niches of world that haven’t been massively human-colonized yet. Since I started my journey as a climate activist I found out how much fun I can have in handling a shovel and getting dirty in the effort of growing some plants: I look forward to picking the first tomato, I think we will name it as if it were our new-born baby.
I believe in justice, in human kindness, in embracing the other (be it an animal, person, tree or an idea that I strongly disagree with) with love and respect for the value of life. I believe there’s no absolute truth and there’s no way we can fully understand this complex and diverse universe in which we are only a little, beautiful part, together with so many more incredible inches of reality.
Hi, my name is Marc.
I’m 19 years old and I come from Sant Fost de Campsentelles a little village next to Barcelona. I always have been interested in nature. Last year I finished the high school and I was tired of the conventional studies so I decided to do something different, my cousin told me about this place and I decided to come.
After one month as a Workaway volunteer in the school i decided to enroll in the Climate Change program because I think that this is one of the issues that we are going to need to solve in the next years. This program give you a theoretical education where you can learn about the issues of climate change, but it also has a great practical part where you go to another country and you put in practice all that you learn in Denmark.
My name is Alejandro.
I´m from a little city in Spain called Zamora. I finished my high school studies and I´m doing the 9 months climate program.
Now I´m in the study phase. I´m enjoying this program a lot, meeting and living with a lot of people from different countries of the world. I have done work out of the school with Lithuanian, Polish and Danish people, the hours of work and breaks are different than in my country but the people who work there were very nice. çRecently I learned how to make bread and how to plant a harvest.
Before I came here I knew about the climate issues that we have around the world, the plastic impact on the environment and also the problems of using non-renewable energy, but now after a month and a half of studies I have learned a lot and I´m now really interested in try to give some knowledge to the people, to make action and also to change my daily life.
This program for me opened a lot of doors not only external but also internal.
