A Global Youth Summit Meet called “Trekking in South Africa’s Dragon Mountains” and formed part of the annual July Camp held near the Chimney Pots in the Giant’s Castle area. Twenty participants from five UIAA member federations (France, Italy, South Tirol, Spain and UK) and four young South Africans attended this landmark event. Also in attendance was Anita Röhner of Swiss Alpine Club and a former vice-president of the UIAA Youth Commission.

Later that year (October) we hosted the UIAA Youth Commission Meeting in Cape Town, for the first time.
