#hierundhappy – more responsible travel with photo competition!

The big #hierundhappy photo competition is being launched on 01 July 2020 as part of the myclimate foundation's "Shape your trip", the new education programme for 14 to 25-year-olds. We want it to highlight holiday opportunities in Switzerland and promote awareness of sustainable travel.

This summer, travel to foreign countries will barely be possible, if at all. The alternative means holidaying in and around Switzerland. When consciously tackled, these enforced circumstances offer opportunities for unexpected and simultaneously climate-friendly travel experiences.

The "Shape your trip" team is therefore launching the #hierundhappy special this summer. Teenagers and young adults can post or submit pictures of their holidays via Instagram or email. Using the hashtag #hierundhappy, they can write a short text about their old and new holiday destinations and on the pros and cons of their holiday in the year of the pandemic.

All information on the competition is available at myclimate.org/hierundhappy and on instagram.com/shapeyourtrip.

All participants will be entered into a draw to win exciting prizes, including overnight stays in the Swiss Youth Hostels, Reka travel vouchers, and luggage.

#hierundhappy is supported by SBB, EnergieSchweiz, Swiss Youth Hostels, Switzerland Tourism and the Mobility Academy.
