Cycling around the world in support of environmental stewardship
Whats up here?
vision I am looking to find a way to send the message of “We Need Trees” as far as I can. This message is a symbol of our work but educating more people and increase the awareness about environment are what I am about to do. Education is a very important way to stop destroying the nature, and of course kids are making future. so educated kids will do much better than what we are doing now!!!!
mission I want to give this message to you , all of you and all people of the world without considering their race , religion or nationality . I am going to ask all the people of the world to keep the “ care for the world and plant trees ” , because our life depends on the life of the trees . To put it in action ,I am cycling around the world to pass the message of WE NEED TREES and in cities along the way I go to schools to make a workshop for kids and talk about trees. I talk about trees and their importance in our life and we discuss to find out what we indevidually can do for our planet to keep it clean. Kids are making future and if they learn how to look after nature then we will have green earth and blue sky.
About my workshops in school In the school we usually set a workshop with students ( age between 7 to the end of high school !). first I tell them about my journey a bit and after ward we discuss about our personal impact on environment. there re some materials like PPT, pictures, video which I use during the class. At the end we wrap up with planting a tree all together to symbolize our action and make a physical contact with earth. we always use our hands to give dirt and soil to the tree and some part of our soul too, in return to receive from earth. All my activities and visiting school is for free, just I will be happy if school provide the tree, otherwise I will bring it myself.

This is so weird to spend nearly 7 months only for a visitor visa to go to Switzerland to do my job for the Association. I still cant understand why I should wait so long for a visa while I have visited Europe many times and I never had any problem getting visa, but this time !! strangely they keep me waiting.
Time supposed to be gold and so important but it seems that my time has no value which is not fare. for last 7 months I never could plan anything even for one month and I was standby all the time, even I was packed and in one part of this tiring process I bought my flight. Of course as a traveler I try to buy the cheapest flight and it was non-refundable and I lost my flight even though I had the authorisation code for the visa.
Anyway, it seems that I still have to wait, but the good part is that I started learning Spanish while waiting and training as well as visiting schools and fixing some bugs of the Association’s website. I cant start our official work before I go to Switzerland to provide our educational materials with MArcia Banks.
