An adventure as an opportunity to share

We aim to live an intense adventure and use its story as an opportunity to raise awareness, reconnect and popularize and share the crew's observations. This will be done by hosting an online travel portfolio bringing together a database of encountered good practices (water and soil management, use of mushrooms) but also the podcasts and musical works co-created by SEAD. This travel portfolio will then be published once back home under the format of a book, conferences will also be organized then  to increase the impact of our awareness-raising objective.

A double impact

Engage sustainability and resilience

On the other hand, by organizing workshops, the crew aims to put their reflection capacity at the service of the communities they meet. Their goal is to engage development of sustainability and resilience of those places which are most impacted by the ongoing climate and societal changes of our times. To achieve this objective, the crew will use music and their open-mindedness to bring together and organize joint reflection workshops to highlight and put in context the good practices observed within the community or to propose innovations deemed relevant for the local context.
