The Adventure Activist is a non profit platform which produces unique stories and educational content to promote the charitable mission of the Sustainable Development Goals. We believe those who are privileged to expand their horizons as travelers and explorers bear intimate witness to the threats to our world and mankind and are uniquely positioned and motivated to serve in return. With our free, educational podcast we provide a place for inspiring conversations with adventurers who share our mission and whose work serves as case studies, that exemplify work to address the global goals. Our programming is also an educational space for the public, which presents the foundational knowledge and tools for making positive change shared from our network of subject matter experts in diverse areas of expertise including health, education, peace, justice, conservation and climate.
To explore and expand our horizons, to orient our actions in the service of the planet and its people, to create, curate and explore solutions for a sustainable world.
We chose the ever-growing arena of podcasts as the medium for our message for two reasons: their sky-rocketing popularity and the power of an audio story to impact listeners. Podcasts have exploded in popularity, 62 million Americans listen to podcasts every week, and over 50% of Americans have heard at least one podcast. Through the power of story, in particular hearing a story through another’s voice, we have the opportunity to connect more deeply with citizens from around the globe. It is through this visceral understanding that will motivate each of us to take action for a better future.
