2013-12-17_ch_root_presentation-low.jpgThe 10 weeks in Switzerland were very busy. Highlights: 1st time Xmas with our families since we are on the expedition and meeting friends.
We had a lot of presentations and interviews: The most important have been our talk at the Schmidheiny Symposium in Interlaken and the interview in the Aschbacher-Show, Swiss TV.
Thanks to Family Estermann we had a place to stay in the mountain village Braunwald – thanks to our families in Jakobstal and Vilters. The kids did well in school and skied most of the time after school.
The most energy and time we needed to organize the TOPtoTOP Climate Solution Award. It was again very successful. Here some films from Jacqui and some feedbacks:

“Hi Dario, how are you? Jacqui and I met yesterday at Singapore. It was so nice seeing her again. We were thinking to organize some outdoor sports under the name of toptotop from next week on. The most important pickup from this trip for me is sports CHANGE LIFE. Many people like to do protect the environment because they do outdoor sports and feel the beauty of nature. Then people makes friends easily when doing sports. Becoming healthier, happier and stronger in mind. I wish to promote this idea which also aligns with TOPTOTOP goal. We were also thinking to organize some presentation about our trip in Singapore. Some of my friends are already asking how to join us.
Best regards to you and families Ginny”
“Hey Dario, I just wanted to say thank you and how much I enjoyed the award program in Switzerland. I came back so inspired to do some more great projects for the planet and am so happy to have this global network to work with and bounce ideas off. Thanks so much for your hard work in organizing it.
It was wonderful to see you and the family again and hope it will not be too long before we meet again – I must make it out to the boat one of these days Love Louise”
Many thanks to all of you who supported us during this busy and sometimes difficult time.
