Driving Change

The EXPEDITION Project connects inspiring, sustainable projects and individuals with each other and with the resources they need, and it shares their stories with the world.

Since 2011 we have travelled 32054km, visited 353 towns & 152 projects, with the help of 405 hospitality partners to meet and understand the challenges communities face. We then connect  projects, communities, ideas and individuals with each other, share their successes and help take them one step further with contacts, expertise and funding. 

We are literally 'Driving Change'!

EXPEDITION: Conservation - #TEP2013 Route 3

Lettie and Lisa were whisked away by one of Sibuya's rangers. As they boarded the boat to navigate the river to camp, Roger and Mark warned them of something called “khaki fever”. Their puzzled faces said it all...
