On Sunday (15th July) I’ll be leaving to the Arctic Circle with my five teammates, a little fleet of EVs, and some camping gear.
We are setting out on an adventure with purpose, connecting the six of us- six very different individuals- on an exciting journey, promoting the uptake of electric vehicles and raising awareness about oil spills, ocean plastic pollution, and C02 emissions.
We kick off from Bristol, where we will be partnering with Project Aware and PADI for the Clean Up Bristol Harbour Event, then on Monday we will stop in Milton Keynes to visit the EV Experience Centre before we head to Le Shuttle, make the crossing to Calais and begin our ascent North, via the following cities:
And in case you were wondering what car I will be driving… It’s the EV unicorn, the Tesla Roadster
If you want to keep track, everything you need to know is below!
DAILY BLOG & DATA
You can follow the journey here on my blog, where I hope to be giving as close to daily updates as possible.
We will be collecting and logging a substantial amount of data from the vehicles and of the journey, which we will publish afterwards. I will be logging location-based information using the fantastic what3words platform.
VIDEO + LIVESTREAM
Also, in my mission to get more active with video, and being lucky enough to have a team of excellent videographers with me, we will also be producing a lot of video content. So I have finally set up a YouTube account to share all the action.
Without the help from our amazing partners and supporters, we couldn’t have reached this point.
We hope that with the support we receive on Patreon we will be able to create bigger, better adventures and stories in order to raise awareness about these big, scary issues, such as oil spills, plastic pollution, CO2 emissions etc. in an accessible way. We hope to show the beauty and fragility of the world in our storytelling, whilst adding fun and humour as well to keep a wider audience engaged. And of course, get people excited about electric cars!
