Volvo Adventure is an education programme for young people between 10 and 16 years of age. Organized in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the programme is designed to heighten environmental awareness and encourage environmental activities among the decision makers of the future. Environmental projects designed to improve the local environment are undertaken by groups numbering a maximum of five.
