Biodiversity loss and the degradation of natural ecosystems is a global issue that has to be solved both on a global and regional level. To achieve a global impact, we need to hear from the people who are working on the local scale to effectively combat biodiversity loss.
In April 2022 we have set out on an about 20,000 km long journey from Germany to Singapore spanning over 20 countries, combining moving on a global level but talking to people on a regional level.
Our goal is to learn about conservation in different contexts from local communities and organizations and raise awareness amongst the people that follow us. We want them to understand how differently effective nature conservation can be accomplished across Eurasia. Biking4Biodiversity advocates for the people who take charge in their local communities for nature restoration and protection. This might sound obvious, but it’s all too often not the case. Wherever the local community benefits from the nature nearby and is in charge of looking after it, the impacts can be incredible. But many projects fail, because the locals are left out. Every individual makes an impact on their surroundings every day, and you get to choose what sort of impact you make.
We have so much respect for the people working to protect and to restore these landscapes. There are so many people doing amazing things, which honestly fills us with hope. On this journey, we want to get to know them and share their stories.
Thank you so much for being part of our project!
