How can Eco-Friendly vacations offer self-discovery and culture awareness opportunities?

Share this:

In our obsession to stay wired to the others we’re saturated with electronics gadgets. Do you feel like you’re losing the deeper connections with your life? Are your surroundings blurred and out of focus. To reconnect and refocus an Eco-Friendly vacation provides a soothing solution.

Eco-Friendly travel  is  slow travel with cultural immersion that can get you back in touch with yourself and awaken a new awareness to world around. With slow travel you fly less and stay longer. When you stay longer you get an opportunity to connect and learn about other cultures. With less travel and a slower pace in a new community you can reconnect and discover new things about yourself. You’ll have an opportunity to explore the things that make you feel alive.

Take time to study and grow at Folk High School in Denmark:

If you like the idea of slow travel and want a place where you can express yourself, find out more about your talents and what makes you happy, you may want to consider a short or long study/stay at the International Peoples College (“IPC”) in Denmark.

What is IPC:


 Here’s how they describe their mission:

 IPC traces its founding to  Peter Manniche (1889-1981), a true visionary and an idealist who believed that if people from countries that had been former enemies in war could live, work and study together in a Danish Folk High School environment, this would contribute towards mutual understanding. His idea was well received especially because the horrors of World War I (1914-1918) were still very present in people’s memories. Peter Manniche received several honours in recognition of his many contributions, amongst these a distinguished nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize and an Honorary Doctorate from Springfield College, Massachusetts.

Ever since its foundation in 1921, IPC has been a meeting place to celebrate diversity and appreciate it as a precondition for fruitful learning about self, and others and the world. In Manniche’s mind, people of different cultural and social backgrounds were to meet at IPC in positive dialogue and in search of deeper human and spiritual values.

 What can you gain at IPC:

  •             Make new friends
  •             Gain global awareness
  •             Lives a cross-cultural experience
  •             Explore towns in Denmark and learn about their culture
