Background

On the 11th December 2009, Gary Waterworth Owen, Garreth Waterworth Owen, Guy Powiecki, seven Bedouin including the "Scorpion Prince", 14 camels and a dog, completed a 32 day journey from the Gulf of Suez, across the Sinai desert, finishing at the Gulf of Aqaba bordering Saudi Arabia.

The aim of the expedition was to highlight the challenges of climate change, scarce water resources and need for eco-innovative solutions.

During the trek we produced very little waste, our carbon footprint was minimal and only carried what we needed.

The expedition was a truly inspiring, life changing experience for all. It not only highlighted the environmental challenges associated with climate change, water shortages and loss of biodiversity, but also the importance of respect for other cultures and the need for creative thinking.
