In September 2018 and 2019, four two-person teams competed in an orienteering race across Switzerland. They connected as many checkpoints as possible spread across the country. The two goals: be fast and have the smallest carbon footprint. In addition, each checkpoint had a theme related to the ecological transition. The participants were followed by a film crew and were equipped with an on-board camera to film their adventure. The objectives were to present sustainable transportation, energy, and consumption alternatives in Switzerland, to raise awareness of everybody's personal impact on the environment, as well as to rally young people around the climate crisis. We hope that this race contributes to the creation of stronger environmental actions and motivates new sustainable initiatives.
A third edition will take place in August 2021. Read about it here.
