Sustainable travel is a complex subject.

It is increasingly important not only to have the right buzzwords on your website, but also to involve customers, employees and travellers in its implementation. We offer workshops and training materials


We use various online formats to educate around sustainable travel and responsible volunteering.

No matter if it’s for companies and employees, educational projects or seminars for young travelers who want to volunteer abroad.

For individual requests, please contact us.

Sustainable Travel in Education

The social dimension of sustainability and people’s own attitudes and mindsets when travelling are rarely addressed. We are changing that with two educational videos and a workbook to accompany our concept: Mental Backpack.

Workshops in schools – Cologne

Funded and supported by the municipality of Cologne we organize workshops in schools on the topic: “Responsible and sustainable travel after school”.

The program SmartCity Cologne has the aim to sensitize and inspire young people to make responsible decisions for themselves and others while traveling. We also offer our digital-learning-platform to create a fun experience.

Responsible Volunteering in  Nepal

Funded by the Synergy Program of ifa (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations), give & grow worked together with Umbrealla Organization Nepal.

The goal was to use both perspectives of Nepal and Germany to tackle the problems of volunteering with children in Nepal and share learning around this topic. One part of the project was to conduct workshops in Nepal with “Childcare Homes” an the topics of mindset, responsible Volunteering and child protection. The PDF learning document is the result of a collaboration sharing the most important tips on the topic.
