About Me

CURRENT MISSION

rockin southwestern europe (france, spain, portugal)

ABOUT ME

We are a group of young people that decided to move out in the world to encourage and motivate its people, spreading awareness that together we are able to progress to something more inspirational and sincere than the trends towards social isolation, passive consuming culture, lack of prospects, and unneccessary hierarchies in learning and working life.

We prepared some content (scroll down!), but in the end it's your ideas which make the tour what it should be

So take part! Another world EXISTS!

Teach, Learn, Share

SKILLSHARING - CAUSE KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

the most important thing for us while we are travelling is learning and teaching ... the skillsurfers project is mostly a skillsharing tour inspired by the ideas of the travelling school of life.

That means that we want to exchange our knowledge and ideas with you, wanna teach you about what we know, learn from you and carry the seeds of inspiration you are giving us with us to let your ideas grow in other places... :-)
