  1. I don’t want to set off a debate, but sometimes these high profile adventures miff me. I believe that environmentalism, like charity, should begin at home. The modern evironmental movement seems to be about big answers to little problems, by that, I mean if all of us as individuals did what we should to protect our local environment, there would be no need for big answers. Sailing the world and raising awareness may be fun, but it really accomplishes very little.

That is precisely what it was about and provided learning opportunities for young adults about environmentalism. All of the little pieces equals a big whole in caring more about the world around us. We live in a global community.
