On a tall ship across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and back while school 'continues'. For six months, I will discover the world and myself with School at Sea.
Student, inventor and actor. In short, a nerd with star power and a dream.
My name is Jonas, I am 16 years old and in October 2022 I will be going to school for six months on the Atlantic Ocean with School at Sea.
Together with 36 other pupils, I will sail to the Caribbean and back again on a three-master. I will learn things in practice that are not taught at school: getting to know other cultures, teamwork, perseverance and independence. During the trip, school will continue as usual: two days of school, two days of waiting.
After two months, the apprentices take over the ship. From navigation to cooking and from cleaning to maintenance of the machines. There are many excursions, exchanges with local schools and private trips where you go backpacking in small groups and have to arrange everything yourself.
Part of the project is to raise €26,000. In exchange for a business sponsorship of €1000 or more, I will make a drone recording of a location of my choice. So you will be the wind in my sails!
my wonderful sponsors
THE WIND IN MY SAILS
HOW CAN YOU HELP ME
As a thank you for corporate sponsorship, I will make a drone film of a location of your choice. An excellent opportunity to showcase your company in a unique way.
It is still special how many kind people want to help me realise my dream trip. Every little bit helps and brings me a little closer to my goal.
PUT ME IN TOUCH
Word of mouth works great and is rewarded with an extra drone film if a company recommended by you also decides to sponsor me.
THE OCEAN CLEANUP
It does not feel right to me to collect such a huge amount of money just for my own 'growth'. Therefore, I have decided to help a good cause at the same time.
During exchanges with schools along the route, I will explain to the local pupils what The Ocean Cleanup is and what it does. In this way, I hope to do my bit to reduce the plastic soup in the ocean.
