Love to CouchSurf, but want to lower your environmental impact on the world while doing so? Then this is the group for you!
The Race2theGreen Project is designed to help promote international relations and cultural exchange while also raising awareness of the need to increase sustainability in global travel! Our goal is to set up a non-profit organization and put together massive CS events that help make it easier for us to bike, canoe/kayak or sail around the world and visit green festivals, solar panel factories, windmill farms, organic gardens and other eco-friendly locations on our travels!
Ideally we'd like to make 3-minute videos each week of our adventures, to show to high school students to help inspire them to take gap years and travel the world as green as possible!
Whether you want to be on the adventures with us, toss out suggestions, provide us with contacts you think might make the event a success, put together welcoming parties when we come to your city or just follow our progress...consider yourself invited!
