2. Advertise, and
3. Realise, two wonderful annual adventures; Oztrek and Jarvojagxo.
Oztrek (An Australian Odyssey for Overseas Youth Groups)
One possible form:
fly to Melbourne at the start of the European summer holidays, or the start of our winter holidays . They are welcomed by
the Melbourne club and have a bit of city fun before heading off by cars or bus to Bega. They stay in economy accommodation
in Bega for a few days, surfing, snowboarding, tobogganing, go-carting, boating in the yacht and/or catamarans, laser-gaming,
exploring and then continue by cars or bus to Sydney. The group have more city adventures there before flying out of Sydney
or continuing north to Newcastle, the Gold Coast and the Reef, if they wish and funds permit.
Oztrek could be offered to Esperanto Youth groups through TEJO and possibly to other youth
groups, such as church groups. AEA members could enjoy hosting a part of the adventure and the association could legitimately
make some profit from the service it provides, especially to groups not yet part of the Esperanto community.
Jarvojagxo (An Annual Overseas Esperanto Adventure for New Esperantists).
Those responding to our “Cultural Escape” advertisement
(to be designed and booked) could be welcomed into a preparation group where they would get to know each other and start
learning the language through the internet and/or the correspondence course and/or real live meetings depending where they
are. Participation in Summer School could be part of the package deal. Internet communication could be established between
participants and members of the club at the destination. All participants would pay YHA rates for accommodation and this sum
would be offered to Esperantists offering home-stay hospitality to offset costs. (This might not coincide
with the Universala Kongreso because the UK is not always very novice-friendly and it is harder to get home-stays or
hostel accommodation at those times.)
