As you may know by now, I’m a considerable way into a large world record attempt involving spreading environmental education amongst rural communities in south-east Asia. Right now, I’m gearing up for another field research trip to collect educational information.
The data will be converted into extremely simplified school lessons for children whose understanding of the natural world is miniscule. The upcoming trip takes me across Papua New Guinea, through the Solomon Islands and Cambodia. In all these locations, I’m searching for interesting people whom I can interview about nature-related topics.
If you’ve got contacts in these nations for natural history researchers, museum staff, sustainability entrepreneurs or others who would like to be profiled in the educational materials being produced, let me know! Many of us are aware of individuals and companies working very hard to showcase waste minimisation / ecologically sensible choices / carbon reduction schemes and other aspects of “living green”. These are precisely the type of folk I am keen to show in the educational lessons.
Your leads anywhere in these 3 nations will be deeply appreciated, so that I’m able to maximise my opportunities on such field trips.
In the meantime, I’m gearing up for another world record attempt: showing how recycling can look good and make sense for communities. Wish me luck and keep checking WorldRecordChase.com for details – or to check out what I’ve been up to for the past 12 years.
