Antarctica may be the ultimate destination for Team #WeTwo, but first, there is work to be done here in Britain.
On a mission to engage young people to realise there are epic adventures on their own doorstep, highlight environmental issues close to home and turn the spotlight on wildlife conservation efforts that they can get involved in, Phoebe and Dwayne undertook an Antarctic-style expedition - in the UK in November-December 2019.
They completed their walk of 1,333km (828miles) from Dunnet Head – the most northerly point in mainland Britain, to Lizard Point - the southernmost point, wild camping the entire 40 nights it took and pulling all their equipment in specially-designed wheeled pulks from Dutch company Radical Designs. Doing so helped them raise nearly £10,000 for their #WeTwo Foundation.
Along the way they visited Scout groups, gave a talk at the RGS for the World Land Trust as part of Steve Backshall's One Wild Night and appeared on BBC Breakfast on Christmas Day broadcasting live from the top of Glastonbury Tor.
Team #WeTwo wants to show that adventuring can be done responsibly. That’s why they took the train to the start of Seabirds to South British expedition and why they planted a #WeTwo tree in Kew Gardens in London to offset any carbon produced.
Adventures in Britain
The team is hugely passionate about showcasing the range of adventures available right here in Britain and will use the Seabird to South expedition to prove it.
In 2022 Dwayne and Phoebe will take a group of underprivileged young people to Antarctica by expedition ship -
Together #WeTwo can change the world. Because while we can all fight for our corner individually, the only way we make things happen is by working together. So that #WeTwo will eventually become #WeToo.
