Second- and third-year Grenoble INP – Phelma, UGA students Enola, Élia, and Carla will be embarking in October on a sailing adventure to the Caribbean for their gap year..
The trio set up a nonprofit called Trimousse in late 2021 to raise elementary school students’ awareness of environmental issues and get kids in Grenoble and the Caribbean to exchange viewpoints on the topic.
They plan to arrive in the Caribbean by the end of 2022 and will stay until the following May, visiting classrooms and running workshops using the “Fresque du Climat” game. They will sail back across the Atlantic before hurricane season, arriving in Grenoble for the beginning of the school year.
