After a warm welcoming at the school the participants went to the gym for the "group finding activity", all were wondering what it would be like but none had a concrete idea. But  after loosening a human knot and guessing different types of sport, the first exchange between the members have been made and the names got faces. Now all of the participants are heeding to Vaduz for their first working session. We're looking forward to their interesting results.

02:00 pm: The first facts and impressions just spread their wings and flew in! During the second committee meeting in the afternoon DSC_0212.JPGthe delegate's heads were smoking  all the time. They had a lot interesting ideas like: Why don't we reduce the heating in the rooms to 18 degrees celsius because it's scientifically proofen that the human brain works most efficiently at that temperature. Or what about the idea of some experts coming to your house and telling you how to save energy by building the house more sustainably. Also taxes for excessive consumption of energy where one of their issues. Well, all of these ideas are quite interesting and the delegates where arguing a lot and checking all different possibilities.

During the ceremony, directed by the three presidents Judith Hasler, Moritz Schwarz and presidency Abuzar Erdogan, we heard a speech of Eugen Nägele (headmaster of the Liechtensteinisches Gymnasium), Renate Müssner  (agent of the Liechtenstein government), Dominik Siegrist (president of CIPRA) and Regula Imhof (from the Alpine Convention). To keep everybody entertained, the musicians of the Gymnasium played music in the intervals to brighten the mood of the ceremony. After the opening ceremony all the participants were invited to enjoy a buffet and afterwards the dinner. At 09:30 pm, after a great but intense day, all the participants went home tired but happy and excited for the next day in parliament.
