CAMPAIGN FOR THE RECYCLING OF BROKEN CELL PHONES, The Jane Goodall Institute Italy

The Jane Goodall Institute, which has long been committed to building a better future for animals, people and the environment, has promoted the mobile recycling campaign worldwide to allow each of us to contribute:
to reduce the accumulation of toxic waste, due to pollution of the environment in which we live;
to reduce the demand for coltan and tantalum that can be recovered from old devices no longer used and, consequently, to avoid the destruction of forests, habitats of chimpanzees in danger of extinction;
to support, with the proceeds from recycled cell phones, the medical, food and school expenses of orphans living at "The Child's Home of Sanganigwa" in Tanzania, an ambitious educational and global project, to ensure that Sanganigwa's guests become prepared and autonomous individuals, active citizens and promoters of development in their territory.
The JGI Italy has started collecting mobile phones with an appeal to all of us citizens. Cell phones collected are sent to a company that recycles minerals and metals. The proceeds from the campaign help fund educational projects of the Jane Goodall Institute.

Anyone with a cell phone to discard can participate in this project of conservation of chimpanzees and their habitat by bringing it the night of the Adventure Awards Night.


ETHICS, AUTHENTICITY, CORRECTNESS: THE VALUES OF AKU ARE THOSE OF ADVENTURE DAYS.

We are happy that also this year we renew the collaboration with a brand such as AKU Trekking & Outdoor Footwear, which makes ethical and authentic love for Nature its own company philosophy.
"We do not want to think that those who buy our products are a consumer of goods. We like to believe that it is the conscious user of an authentic and functional product. An ethically correct product, is an expression of a concrete value destined to last over time".
The synergies in which we believe are these, which arise from the same glance on the world.

MONTANUS - The Wild Side

THEY WILL BE WITH US ON STAGE TO PRESENT THEIR MOVIE "TRAMONTANA"
Montanus is a coin with two sides: on one side there is the journey, the exploration and the tent pitched at edge of the world; on te other side there is the anti-rhetoric and the sympathy of two guys who first of all want to have fun, to tell stories, to share a passion, sometimes reversing the pomposity of marketing of large companies.
If you read the website, Montanus presents itself as a bikepacking project in all seasons. As an attitude, an inner journey. As the scent of musk on the gloves, dry red mud on the bike, the ice on the sleeping bag. As life outside the "comfort zone", inspiration for those seeking direct contact with nature. As a trip with a slow pace needed to enjoy the scents and colors.

NO MAN'S LAND - Davide Calafa

A place that still is ruled by the strong nature, surrounded by the ocean and his creature, a place that doesn’t belong to any man. Free place. No man’s land.

Worn Wear Tour of Patagonia

After the great success achieved last year, with 7 countries visited and over 2000 items repaired, Patagonia's European Worn Wear tour returns to Italy.

The initiative promoted by the outdoor brand is a real "on the road" mission to encourage people not to throw their clothes away just because they are broken or torn.

Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April at the Village of the Adventure Awards Days, enthusiasts and customers can reach the Station Worn Wear where the specialized staff will offer free repairs of zippers, buttons, torn fabrics and more, of any brand, also providing valuable advice on how to adjust jackets, trousers and sweaters independently.

"Creating a product that can last over time and that can be repaired is the first and most important step towards a concrete limitation of our environmental footprint" underlines Rose Marcario, CEO of Patagonia.

Nothing is more important and equally effective than extending the life of our clothes to the maximum. The simple act of making our clothes last longer, repairing them when necessary, allows you not to buy new ones, thus avoiding the generation of CO² emissions, the production of waste, and the consumption of water associated with the cycles production of the textile sector. The Worn Wear program celebrates the stories we wear through the clothing that accompanies us in our adventures, helping to keep them in action longer.

Just think that, keeping in circulation what we wear for another nine months, we can reduce the CO2 emissions, waste and water consumption by about 20-30%, and this only by discarding fewer things .

Because Better Than New.

AROUND A VISION - Riccardo Chemello

A journey into parkour. We are convinced to be "one" for ourselves and for others, instead we are many different individuals, depending on the view of those who are watching us.
Each of these "forms" is defined as a "mask", faceless, there is no one, then the next moment we are no longer what we were.
