PLUG ME IN
Plug Me In is a purpose-driven adventure with as aim to educate, inspire
and accelerate the transition to a zero carbon future.
On the 15th of March 2016 I left the Netherlands in an electric car, the Blue Bandit ,
with as destination Sydney, the other side of the world.
I travel without money and rely on the kindness of people around the world.
Plug Me In is based upon the collaboration between people. Anyone can contribute.
On this website you can offer a meal, a place to sleep or electricity for the car.
All the offers form the route to the land Down Under.
I believe everyone can contribute to a more sustainable world.
I try to do my part by showing that electriccars are just as
reliable as their fossil-fuel powered cousins.
Throughout the journey I engage with organisations, people
and initiatives active in the field of sustainability to hear their vision,
challenges and solutions to tackle the climate problem.
