HER Planet Earth and Just Challenge join forces to deliver a truly unique opportunity to join 30 like-minded women on an eight day challenge in Iceland, to drive female empowerment and deliver a global movement that empowers and educates underprivileged women - all whilst raising funds for charity.
20 - 27 August 2019
Arriving on Tuesday 20 August into Reykjavik, Challenge Iceland 2019 offers the most spectacular scenery – eight days of Iceland’s dramatic landscape from lava fields, waterfalls and glaciers to spouting geysers and whale watching.
Entry cost is USD6,800 (including 7 nights’ accommodation, ground transfers, meals, experienced challenge leaders, medical support and sightseeing activities as per the itinerary). The challenge is open to all abilities but we strongly recommend training and a good level of fitness.
The Cause: UN Women UK
HER Planet Earth and Just Challenge are committed to creating a world where environmental integrity and women empowerment can prosper. Challenge Iceland 2019 will raise funds and awareness for UN Women UK - a foundation dedicated to empowering women globally by removing the barriers that prevent women and girls from achieving their potential.
Each participant will be tasked with raising funds for UN Women UK. All funds raised will go towards projects that help underprivileged women affected by climate change - focused on the economic empowerment of women in rural areas of Asia, notably in Bangladesh, Nepal and Vietnam - supporting the belief that women have the right and the need to be at the forefront of efforts to deal with climate change.
HER Planet Earth’s mission is to increase awareness of environmental degradation and raise funds for programmes that empower and educate underprivileged women affected by climate change - ultimately helping them build climate change resilience.
HER Planet Earth is a non-profit organisation which aims to promote a deeper connection between women empowerment and the integrity of the environment.
STAND FOR SOMETHING MEANINGFUL. DRIVE FEMALE EMPOWERMENT. RAISE FUNDS & AWARENESS FOR CLIMATE CHANGE.
