#YoCreoTalento – First steps towards social integration with ‘Transpirenaica’ and start of Imagine Silicon Valley 2018, with 4 dreamers from the Foundation

First week of Transpirenaica Social Solidaria

500 youths and 200 volunteers will complete an 800km trek in 42 days with the Transpirenaica Social Solidaria, an educational project which aims to raise awareness of social integration by trekking across the Pyrenees. They have already completed their first week, passing through the Basque Country, and will now begin their journey across Aragon.

This experience allows young people, educators, professionals and firms to open their eyes to different realities and develop values like companionship, self-improvement, effort, teamwork and leadership, while sharing a truly unforgettable experience. Although the full trek takes 42 days, only a small group will complete the full distance. Most of the youths and volunteers taking part will enjoy one full week of trekking while others will walk for two, three or four days.
