Antarctica. It’s the ultimate destination for Team #WeTwo, the stage on which they will ultimately change the face of adventure in 2020 with their Penguins to Pole, carbon neutral expedition. But first, there is work to be done here in Britain.
On a mission to engage young people to realise there are epic adventures on their own doorstep, highlight environmental issues close to home and turn the spotlight on wildlife conservation efforts that they can get involved in, they will undertake an Antarctic-style expedition - in the UK this winter. On November 18, 2019 they are going to complete a first - rollerskiing and walking (while pulling their gear on rolling sleds) from the northernmost to the southermost points of mainland Britain, in their ‘Seabirds to South’ adventure.
The distance is the same, mile-for-mile, as what they plan to walk in Antarctica. The ascent? Over 9,000m (that’s more than the height of Everest). The mission - equally as carbon neutral with the focus firmly on sustainable adventure as a force for good. And - while doing it they will be fundraising for the #WeTwo Foundation to take a group of underprivileged young people to Antarctica in 2021.
