Environmental education with the KJF

The Kilian Jornet Foundation's

 main mission is "the preservation of mountains and their environment".

Their projects involve: 

  • 'Athlete Climate Academy' educating outdoor athletes about the environment, climate change and possible industry solutions.
  • The Outdoor Friendly Pledge, where athletes like myself promise to limit their impact on the environment by following a set of 10 principles.
  • A glacier monitoring project together with the World Glacier Monitoring Service
  • Various Education Projects, e.g. videos about climate change for catalan school kids

So far I have been involved as a volunteer in all of the above projects, and especially in the Athlete Climate Academy.

Instructor (former youth president)

SAC Swiss Alpine Club

The Swiss Alpine Club SAC brings together people interested in the mountains – regardless of their age, gender, religion, language or background.

Founded in 1863, the SAC has been a dynamic force in developing the Alpine region and climbing. Based on this tradition, the organisation is an advocate of responsible mountain sports and extensive access to mountain areas.

Pascal was the president of the youth section of the Alpine Club in his hometown St.Gallen for seven years and keeps supporting it by guiding climbing and ski trips in the mountains for young people.
