‘Is there a purpose to this gargantuan challenge? you ask. As Wakker explains on his website: “Since March 2016, I’m travelling from The Netherlands to Australia by electric car to make a documentary about sustainability.
“Without any money I completely rely on the energy I receive from people around the world.
“During this journey, I will visit inspiring people, projects, companies and events to make a documentary about sustainability.
“My goal is to find out what sustainability is, to create awareness around this subject and to prove that you can do really cool things with this."
Rather than travelling in a straight line, Wiebe’s route is very much decided by where the people who have offered to help out are located.
As you can see from the map below, he’s zig-zagged his way through Europe, made it to the Middle East but is now ‘stuck’ in Dubai as he tries to make his way to Mumbai.
His team have calculated it will cost approximately Dhs12000 to ship him and his car to India’s biggest city so if you know of anyone who can sponsor him in one way or another, reach out to either us or Wiebe on his website.
As Wiebe explains in one of his YouTube vlogs, reaching India through Pakistan isn't possible as he can only get a visa in person back in his native Holland.
