Expedition 360

November 16th, 2007 by Dave · 1 Comment

Expedition 360 was a successful circumnavigation of the globe using only human power (no motors or sails). Englishman Jason Lewis used bicycles, in-line skates, kayaks, swimming, rowing, walking and a unique pedal powered boat in order to do it. According to their goals and objectives, he and his team were motivated by a desire to promote environmental stewardship and to encourage global citizenship. They also are trying to use the adventure as a learning tool.

During the trip, he developed lesson plans with teachers from around the world. The logbook for every step of the 13 year (!) journey is available, as are lots of photos and videos.

An interview with Jason Lewis is available here.
