Joining the two things he is passionate about, exploration and philosophy, Marek is embarking on a journey to a better tomorrow. Over the course of his 12-month Power4Change project, he intends to show by example that if you want the world to change, you need to begin with yourself. He will conduct research to determine whether developing new technologies can go hand-in-hand with environmental protection and highlight the importance of social activism. The campaign aims to create long-term improvements to our everyday habits and get its participants to reduce their yearly carbon emissions by 10 per cent.
During his voyage, Marek will explore three social areas which he has defined as the key challenges to humanity in the 21st century – Singularity, Sustainability and Social empowerment. These areas will be reflected in Marek’s actions: his relationship with his travelling companion, the NOA robot (Singularity), journeying without carbon emissions (Sustainability) and a social campaign engaging people all around the world (Social empowerment).
