Anyone between 15 and 20 years old can apply to join Mike Horn’s Pangaea environmental expedition, a round-the-world adventure that will be exploring the Himalayas in May 2010.
There are no costs attached – all you need is a passion for saving the planet. The emphasis is on showing youths the beauty of the Earth, so that they grow up to be its custodians.
From the applications, about 20 youngsters from around the world will be selected to attend a training camp in Switzerland. From those, about eight will be chosen to join the Himalaya climb. All expenses are covered and there is no cost to participants for either the training camp in Switzerland or the Himalaya climb.
The Pangaea expedition is a four-year, seven-continent journey. Those who join the expedition, called Young Explorers, join in different places to Explore, Learn and Act. So far groups have visited Antarctica, New Zealand and Borneo.
Applications close soon! (The application deadline has been extended to after Christmas and is not 20th Dec as stated on the website.) For more info visit www.mikehorn.com or see pangaea-mikehorn.com to complete an application form, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
