Today we travelled through Omsk and Barabinsk as the days ever pass. The journey I’m embarking on still feels a bit surreal but I guess what makes it more and more of a reality is a combination of balancing that idea of doing climate change and SD work in Mongolia, as well as the practicalities of preparing ourselves for when we arrive and to be fully equipped to give the young people in Mongolia workshops on they can be more engaged with such matters. In doing so we’ve all been putting in the hours to learn more about this on the train.
On a personal level this trip is doing wonders for my mind body and soul (even without exercise on the train). I almost feel as if I wish I could stop time to be able to take in some of these breathtaking views of Russia as its almost a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-oh-
Now I feel like I cannot wait to get to Ulaan Baatar and really get stuck into helping kickstart a youth movement on sustainable development.
We are 8 young people from Wales traveling by train to Mongolia. We’ve created a project educating young people at home in Wales and out in Mongolia. When we get there we will be helping a group of young Mongolians kick start a youth environmental movement as well as experiencing the best of Mongolian culture. We’ll be blogging, vlogging and leading peer education workshops when we get back, so keep in touch and follow our progress! www.dyfodol.org
