Your chance to join team Expedition SOLO 100 to the Arctic. Please select your donation reward level and join me, Mark Wood, on an official record breaking attempt.
A RACE AGAINST TIME
The climate crisis is a real threat to our world and time is running out to take action. Not everyone can see how we directly impact the planet; and what we don’t see, we tend to ignore.
Mark Wood will venture unaided and alone across the vast cold wilderness of the Arctic Ocean - one of the last uncharted crossings of remaining sea ice on earth. This will also be an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt.
100 DAYS & 100 GLOBAL VOICES
SOLO 100 has a deeper purpose - to amplify the voices of our global youth. Each day of the expedition will be paired with a message to ring out a global call for climate action. 100 Scouts from communities around the world will demonstrate the real effects of climate change from a personal level.
Climate change is devastating the natural world but the impact spills over into human lives too. 100 eye witness accounts, from future custodians of our beloved planet, will challenge the world to look inward. 100 voices of hope, desire and fear for a future reliant on change that can’t come soon enough. For these communities SOLO 100 is a plea for the world to open eyes and elicit compassion for the plight of our future generations.
THE DOCUMENTARY & LEGACY
We will ensure the SOLO 100 continues to inspire people for years to come through a platform for change and a major documentary film. Our long-term film production partners Dustoff Films, Oscar and Academy Award winning documentary company Diamond Docs, and Hardy, Son & Baker, have a highly distinguished reputation in documentary film making.

“Our lives have been transformed this year. The pandemic has shown how resilient we are, how rapidly we can change, and how dependent we are on nature to survive. We must protect our planet and ensure the future of our children. Our youth are demanding urgent action for a world that is fit for all life to thrive. We are running out of time - the time to act is now. Will you join me?” Mark Wood
