Some questions & answers
The Adventurists have announced a new plan to save the world: protecting rainforests to make sure future generations have somewhere to get lost and stuck. And because the world would be shit without them.

Isn’t that just blatantly hypocritical, driving cars and saving rainforests?
Well, certainly no more so than someone getting all twatty under the collar while reading about this on the internet, on a computer, using electricity, breathing, probably wearing clothes, having eaten food and, we’d put good money on it, having farted at some point in their life. If you look at it like that, the ONLY non-hypocritical approach to environmental impact is to commit suicide (but make sure your body doesn’t decompose and release any methane).
This is about doing something with a blindingly positive impact for some of the most interesting and important peoples and environments in the world. The microscopic amount of carbon produced from taking part in an adventure is negligible in comparison to safekeeping the planet’s best locations for getting lost.
How much does each team have to raise for charity?
Every team has to raise a minimum of £1000 for charity. At least half - £500 - has to be donated to the official charity Cool Earth. Beyond that the teams can continue raising money for them or choose another registered charity of their choice. We recommend a number of most excellent charities that have worked with The Adventurists before here.
All money raised for charity has to be donated directly to the charity, not via The Adventurists. Each team pays a separate entry fee for the adventure itself. Read more about this in the How Charity Works section.
What projects will be funded by The Adventurists' teams?
Money raised by teams will be used for Cool Earth's projects in the Peruvian Amazon, in the Junin region. Project updates and fundraising news will be posted in The Adventurists blog, The Jibber and in the charity reports section of this website.
