The 7 rivers, 7 continents project is an endeavour to complete source to sea paddling descents of the longest river on each continent. A combined total distance of 35 000km (22 000 miles).
But, more than successful descents, the project will provide a unique insight into the life that rivers have built and sustain. The great rivers of the world have shaped the very existence of humans and the ecosystems in which they live. The chief aim is to bring these river stories to life. From the fisherman, the hunter, the family and the power company worker, to the farmer, the trees, the predator and the prey. All have inspiring and thoughtful stories to reveal.
Using the medium of multimedia storytelling, the 7 rivers, 7 continents project will engage through photofilms, photo essays, written word and film, all delivered via a unique interactive online platform.
