is Ancient Greek for “entire Earth”.Is the name given to the last ,
global supercontinent ,which existed 250 million years ago.
The PANGAEA project,which envisages sailing around world in
4 years ,is the brainchild of Mike Horn- researcher ,extreme adventurer,idealist,visionary-a man who is renowned for his daring
expeditions.Based on the central theme “explore,learn,act”,he initiates social and environmental project around globe together with young explorers from all over the world.During the expedition ,the young explorers get to know our planet’s ecosystem and play an active part in helping to preserve our natural world.They become ambassadors ,taking the idea of environmental protection back to their homelands,
where they then initiate their own projects.
Like the expedition itself ,Mike Horn’s vessel PANGAEA,is also named after the last of global supercontinent .Measuring 35 meters
in length it is one of the world’s largest and most versatile expedition
sailboat .Even when the boat was being built,preservation of the
environment was a top priority ,the hull is made from recyclable
aluminium and totally dispenses with the use of marine paint.
Both the integrated waste-recycling system and the on-board generators meet strict ecological requirements .Flexible solar cells in
the sails and on the deck provide the necessary power ,for example.
The PANGAEA expedition covers every continent ,every climate zone and every ocean on our planet.At twelve stations around the globe,
Mike Horn and young explorers initiate ecological and social project such as global warming ,waste disposal and biodiversity ,accompanied all the while by teachers,universities and international organizations.
