Riverwalk2015 - Participant Application Form
** Deadline for submission: 27. March 2015 **

Are you ready to Riverwalk?
…do the following statements describe you?

_ You want to get a bit wild this summer…
...while you walk, bike, and paddle along wild rivers in Italy and Slovenia during a 2 week* international youth exchange.
_ You are a motivated young adult (between 15-30 years old)…
…who wants to get active for rivers and the environment.
_ You are interested in a cultural exchange...
…and want to get to know 20 other young people from Austria, Italy and Slovenia, other activists, locals, and experts.
_ You are looking to improve your leadership and teamwork skills, outdoor abilities, learn more about environmental issues and…
…get active in helping to protect wild and wonderful rivers in the Alps!

If you answered, „yes!“ to these questions then you are a good candidate for this project! Apply now to have the chance to join us on this exciting journey from the mountains of northern Italy to the crystal blue waters of the Soča River in Slovenia, be part of a great international team and help us discover and protect wild, wonderful rivers!

* NOTE: This project has only been partially funded (for the Slovenian part) by an Erasmus+ grant; however, we hope/expect that the Italian part will also be funded. In the event that it is not funded, the Riverwalk will likely only take place in Slovenia for 1 week: 01.-07.09.

Where and When?
The Riverwalk 2015, as planned, will start west of Tolmezzo, Italy on the border of Friuli Dolomiti Alps Natural Park on August 24, 2015.
From there we will follow the Tagliamento River east, eventually crossing the Slovenian border and meeting up with the Emerald Queen of the Alps – the Soča River and then continue to our final destination: Kobarid, Slovenia on September 7, 2015.

Why are we doing this?
The number of free-flowing, intact rivers left in the Alps is dwindling and WWF and many local partners are actively protecting the last wild rivers in the Alps. We want to increase the awareness of the importance of free flowing rivers, connect active and motivated young adults from Austria, Italy, and Slovenia, develop participants’ leadership skills and form deep personal connections to two incredible river systems: the Tagliamento River (Italy) and the Soča River (Slovenia).

How much does the Riverwalk cost?
In order to secure your place in the project, a participant fee of 50,00 EUR will be collected and must be paid within 3 weeks of being notified of your acceptance on the project team. This fee will help cover all costs (camping fees, meals, outdoor activities, etc.).
