Sailing around the World with a Mission

26 January 2017

Sailing around the world was not something I had always dreamt of. Exploring the world, yes, but I imagined it would be by 4x4 jeep or VW-minivan. Ivar, on the other hand, grew up a sailor and was living on his sailboat when we met five years ago. As our plans to discover the world together developed, we agreed that sustainability should play an important role. Not only did we hope to discover unspoilt nature, exciting cities and different cultures, but we also wanted to explore and raise awareness of successful solutions to sustainability issues along the way, while traveling on wind energy. That’s how the idea behind Sailors for Sustainability was born.
