Who are we and what do we do?
We are a group of people, mostly between 18 and 35 years old, who share the practice of the naturist lifestyle in all or some of its branches (vegetarianism/veganism, ecologism, nudism, natural medicine…), which bonds us together and allows us to be a well-cohesive group in which friendship, tolerance, acceptance, and respect go before anything else. Here you can find all kinds of people, with diverse interests, tastes, and purposes, but at the same time with a sincere will to live naturism as a peaceful, respectful, and inclusive ideology that is experienced differently by everyone and can be enjoyed even more in the company of others.
Do you want to see it for yourself? Come and meet us! Throughout the year we organize many activities ranging from one-day meetings at beaches to longer stays at various naturist centers, and also excursions, talks, workshops, spa sessions… You will find the coming events in the “activities” section of this site!
Bringing together the young naturists
of the Catalan Countries
We work to create a dynamic and diverse group in which anyone interested in naturism can feel welcomed, without distinctions of gender, ethnicity, language, nationality or belief. We want to offer young naturists in the Catalan Countries (and also beyond), whether they have been practicing the lifestyle for a long time or are still trying to find out what is all about, the opportunity to meet other like minded people and participate in all kinds of meetings (the list is very long!) to share some time together while connecting with nature.
Creating a safe environment
for practicing nudism
Acceptance and respect prevail in our group, and we make sure that the essence of naturism is reflected in both the activities and online communication channels. Our goal is that everyone who wants to be part of Young Naturists can be at ease, in a safe, nonsexual environment that generates confidence and relaxation. That is why we restrict access to WhatsApp groups to people we don’t yet know in person, and we only organize outings when we know that the conditions for the practice of nudism will be adequate and we can count on a good number of fully trusted attendees.
Promoting the naturist lifestyle
through various means
Our work of diffusion on the networks and on this website allows us to reach more people inside and outside Catalonia, and to normalize the practice of nudism in the eyes of society. We fight to preserve our spaces and our rights, and to acquire new ones. We make activism for a cleaner and more sustainable planet, where we can live in harmony with nature. Through the articles we post here, we keep the naturist community active and vibrant and help build a place for the exchange of ideas in which all opinions are accepted and respected.
Do you want to contact us?
If you want to participate in our meetings or join our group, you need to contact us and introduce yourself. In the “Do you want to join?” section we explain to you the whole procedure!
Is Young Naturists a for-profit association?
No. The aim of the group is to promote a lifestyle, guide young people in naturism, have fun in activities and meet new people. We don’t get any economic benefit from doing what we do.
Do I have to become a CCN associate to participate in the activities?
It is not necessary, although we highly recommend it. You will find more information on this topic in the “Do you want to join?” section.
How many people are part of Young Naturists?
We keep in touch with about 30 people, some of them are associated to the CCN and some others aren’t. In the activities, the number of attendees is usually around 10.
When will you organize an activity close to where I live?
We organize meetings according to people’s availability and we are always open to new ideas for activities and places. Why don’t you propose one, near where you live? We look forward to helping you organize it!
What is the girls/boys ratio in the activities?
There is not an established proportion, it is the one that comes out naturally depending on the participants who want to attend to each activity (as in any other group). The only thing we can assure is that the group is quite diverse and that we never limit attendance basing on gender, as we believe that this goes against one of the fundamental pillars of naturism (respect and acceptance towards others).
Does my physical appearance matter when practicing nudism?
Not at all. Nudism, like naturism in general, is based on respect and acceptance, and this involves understanding that all bodies are equally beautiful and natural, in all their shapes and sizes. There is no perfect body, or rather, they are all perfect!
What if I have an erection?
It’s not a big deal, though it’s not very usual. It’s understandable if it happens the first times someone practices social nudism. Just act naturally! 🙂
Do you let people older than 30 participate?
Yes. However, older people may find themselves displaced by a lack of common interests with others. We do not want to be exclusive, but we do want to emphasize that the basis of the group is to make positive discrimination towards young people as a minority group within naturism.
