The â€œJourney to Connectâ€ will see Vince Verlaan take our campaign vehicle (a used 2019 Rav-4 Hybrid) across the continent and back (approx 6500 kms each way) this summer. This will be a zero waste trip, and 190% of our GHG emissions will be offset.
The main idea of this bold effort is to safely meet and interview 19 local Canadian changemakers across 10 provinces (reaching North by telephone interviews as well). Phone or Zoom interviews will be completed over the summer with the 19 US changemakers and 19 global changemakers as well.
The idea is to make direct connections, learn, discuss, profile, and thus stimulate a real movement. The Journey is a critical catalyst for all of this to happen.
Of course, the health and safety of those we interview on this journey is a huge priority, and we will keep interactions safe and minimal. Our detailed safety protocol will be followed, and we will adapt as needed.
