My first Experience with IYNF was a workcamp in Frankfurt 2014. There I got inspired through being two weeks “Off the grid” with a lot of amazing people from the network. This Project showed me how IYNF connects&inspires and motivated me to go to my first planning weekend a few weeks later. I grew up in a youth organisation that has their roots in the working class movement, just like the Naturefriends movement. Therefor I learned very early about the injustices in the World. Rising awareness and bringing together people who share the same ideas is a way I feel able to contribute. In Frankfurt I work as a Climbing Trainer and study Political Science. Apart from that I work with the local Naturefriend groups. Soon I will start my Erasmus semester in Spain to learn another language and live in a different country.
