People from different nations came together at the beginning of September in St. Stefan, Styria for the 3rd Aeneas Camp. The motto of the camp was “learning to cope with a crisis”. The goal was to empower young people and to enable them to deal better with situations of crisis on both an individual, as well as a collective basis. This was achieved by theoretical, as well as practical trainings such as first aid, herbology or urban survival techniques.
Beside the trainings an ecological project was realized: the young philosophers worked on the revitalization of a biotope. In a workshop about repairing electrical items and clothes, many broken devices of the local population could be fixed. The idea behind was to set a sign against todays trend of a throwaway society.
