Eco-trek Reaches Half-Way Point on It’s Drive Around the World

Posted on the 26 April 2011 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Eco-trek Reaches Half-Way Point on It’s Drive Around the WorldWhile last Friday’s installment of Eco-trek was postponed so we could do our annual Earth Day posting, the Eco-Trek team continued their drive in their Mercedes-Benz F-CELL across Australia. In this installment, the team looks at wave energy and speaks with solo ocean rower and environmentalist Roz Savage. Other interesting stops on their tour can be seen in the video below. We’ve been bringing you the series every week and they’ll be about another 5 or 6 episodes before their journey is complete. 

Roz Savage, solo ocean rower, environmental campaigner and author, was the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic in 2005. Her mission: Rowing to create awareness and inspire individuals to take action on the top environmental issues facing the world today. Eco-Trek caught up with Roz just before her launch from Perth to Mumbai, India.

Wave Energy
The CETO wave energy project launched by the Perth-based public company Carnegie Wave Energy is designed to convert the movement of the waves into emission free electricity as well as clean power for the desalination of water.

Junkadelic
Junkadelic is community arts group dedicated to bringing together funk music and culture with a focus on environmental sustainability to young people through free, open workshops and concerts as a way of enhancing their lives.
