Charity

For Charity

We are in the process of selecting two charities for which the expedition will raise funds: given that we shall be looking at the human and wildlife in the harsh physical environments we will be passing through, all of which are vulnerable to the changes occurring to the climate across the world, we would like to support one charity centred around climate change, and one which is dedicating to wildlife and conservation.

Join me at http://www.350.orgWe are delighted to be able to say that we have confirmed the first of these two charities: 350.org. 

350.org aims to build a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis. The campaign is named after 350 parts per million, the safe upper limit of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, according to the latest science (current CO2 levels are at 390ppm). In less than three years, they’ve helped create a network of over 500,000 supporters and over 1,000 partner organizations in over 180 countries. 350.org has organized some of the largest mobilizations in the planet’s history. The organization’s online campaigns, grassroots organising, and mass public actions are led from the bottom up by thousands of volunteer organisers in over 188 countries.

The cause we are all working to is one for all of us – one for all of our futures. Please help us in supporting them: your donation means the world to all of us.

We are really close to confirming our second charity – please keep a look out for further announcements shortly!! So many really amazing organizations out there – it is hard to find the right one! 

For Schools

As the 360 Extremes expedition leaves São Paulo, as well as the blog containing regular video and written updates about the progress and developments of the expedition, we will provide case study information about the environments, peoples and wildlife encountered on route. These will highlight how all exist in what we would generally consider to be harsh and unforgiving environments:

  • Tundra and polar regions
  • High altitude mountainous regions
  • Deserts
  • Rainforests

By the end of the project, we also will build an interactive education website which will follow the journey, containing games, videos, photos and further case studies from the journey in order to develop a lasting legacy for the expedition as a whole – aiming to help build awareness in schools of the environments and cultures across the world, and how they coexist.

For further information, please contact us at 360extremes@mail.com.

    How about 350.org? Climate change is the biggest issue challenging our society, and this is an organization dedicated to mitigating the effects of climate change. They are also in a position to greatly publicize your efforts.
    BTW Thanks for posting on Views about Catskill conditions.
