  • Route
Two sailors, Ivar & Floris, chronicle their sailing trip around the world in search of sustainable solutions for humanity and our planet.

The route takes us around the world to sustainable solutions that work in practice. The solutions are categorized in nine different themes, covering various environmental and social challenges the world faces today. We research, visit, and report the solutions via our own media channels and our partners. By sharing the solutions, we hope to provide you with the necessary concepts and practical tools to make sustainable changes in your own lives and communities. Traveling on wind energy, we left Amsterdam in June 2016. Click below for our introduction video.
