- "REcycle" expedition from Alaska to Argentina.
In June 2015 we are starting a cycling expedition from Alaska to Argentina which will spread across approximately 60'000 km. We are planning to cross all the countries in the Americas. During the “Cycle Americas” expedition we are going to adopt the role of researchers and explorers. The goal is to gather information and analyze the thinking and psychology of different social groups in regards to fuel production and consumption. We will also delve into the way people are feeling about natural preservation and protection and will examine their interactions with nature and the place it holds in their lives.
The title of the research is “Recycling of thinking”. We will also focus on the ways people from both continents manage and treat disposable packaging. We will investigate the way they understand and feel about global warming; and will look into their concept of the future for the planet and for themselves.
Cycling is a small step towards being healthy and moving around in an environmentally sound and inspiring way.
We are from a small country, which is not popular worldwide, but we believe that regardless of where you are, the important thing is how wide your eyes are open for life. Ultimately, great deeds are achieved by ordinary people.
What we will do during the expedition?
