Routes of Change

A donation is made to Routes of Change with each of our property transactions.

Routes of Change is a registered non-profit society based in Tofino, BC, Canada, with plans to be active throughout the planet.

The mission of Routes of Change is to use adventure and entertainment to support the unsung leaders of our planet as they work to create a healthy future for all beings.

“We believe that there is no avoiding change so we might as well embrace it and share ways that we can better adapt to a new sustainable way of life on earth. We share stories of adventure and exploration of the planet by human powered means. By speaking face to face, through presentations, films, books, blogs, tv, media, and most forms of communication we aim to inspire change. Routes of Change.

Our vision is one of compassion and appreciation for all beings in the universe.”

Markus Pukonen is traveling in one consecutive journey around the world by as many motor less means as possible, including rowing, swimming, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, sailing, running, biking, skiing, skateboarding, velomobiling, walking backwards, and pogo sticking. Friends and fellow adventurers will join for support throughout the journey and help to create change through communication, education, and entertainment. Each leg of the route will be in partnership with a local social or environmental organization in order to build the movement towards a wiser earth.

The journey is expected to take about five years with weather and political situations largely influencing the route and timing. Markus is not planning on breaking any records, but he will likely create new ones. We are committed to building Routes of Change into a powerful force of change to create a better future for generations to come.

It is time to change, Routes of Change.
