TOPtoTOP Global Climate Expedition

We sample microplastics and e-DNA at 70 degrees north. The days are getting shorter. That means just over 3 hours of light from sunrise to sunset. The sun is waning faster every day. Currently with 15 minutes less daylight every day.

But the sunlight has been replaced by the stunning aurora borealis. With the northern lights came the whales. Our children spotted the orcas first. We feel like we are on another planet.

The star photographer Florian joins our mission.
The goal of all of us onboard is to inspire more people to save the polar seas.

The orcas and humpback whales around us accept and respect us. They are curious when we are in their element. We feel so humble.

We learned the importance of being connected with nature: it feels like falling in love. It creates a deep relationship that gives you so much energy and satisfaction. We believe this feeling has the power to save the planet.

In this context, we got the idea for our new campaign: ☺H☺ MORE with LESS!

Make the promise to spend at least 1 hour a day outdoors (= One Hour Out = OHO = ☺H☺).
Start with "living light":
Keep your things to the bare minimum. If anything gets damaged, fix them before replacing it.

Being in nature for 1 hour will benefit you from being a happier and healthier person. You will be connected with nature and you will deepen that friendship every day.

You will realize that it does not need things to be happy, but relationships. There is nothing more precious than sharing these experiences with your loved ones. Free yourself from your ballast. "Living light" is good for your soul and you gain freedom. It also takes fewer resources if we stop with our consumerism of "more and more". Mother Earth will be able to breathe again.

Again our planet earth with its unique natural environment and its biodiversity will be the safe home for all living beings. Take care of her! She deserves it!

Thanks to "Victorinox" we have the best multi-tool and thus the freedom to improvise and repair things.
Thanks to "Patagonia" and "Aqua Lofoten Coast Adventure" we had the right wet and dry suits. The super trio of Lars-Åge, Toby, and Andy from "Aqua Lofoten Coast Adventure" became our friends. They have years of experience and shared their passion for these great creatures with us.

Because of Corona, our funding is critical. Please consider a donation at toptotop.org?
