Otesha: Cycling for Sustainability

Are you passionate about sustainability? Are you looking for something to do midyear in 2011? Have you ever dreamt about riding around Australia on two wheels? If so, then why not put those dreams into action and join The Otesha Project (Australia): Cycling for Sustainability‘s forthcoming adventure.  Otesha is currently seeking 20 passionate people to participate in the next eight-week cycle tour: Melbourne to Canberra (April 26 – June 22, 2011). Wow, what an opportunity!

Since 2000, The Otesha Project (Aus.) has pedaled across Australia educating youth and raising awareness about environmental sustainability and social justice issues. Otesha is a Swahili word for ‘reason to dream’ and is the underlining philosophy of the organisation. The Otesha crew combines theatre performance with interactive workshops to empower primary and secondary school students to consider their life choices to create a positive future. Following the 2010 Otesha tour, a tour member recalled ‘There is no better way to test your potential, stretch your boundaries and really live, than to do something like Otesha where you’re walking the talk of a simple and more sustainable lifestyle, meeting so many inspirational people along the way and seeing the countryside at the first light of day’.

Otesha (Aust.) is seeking people from all walks of life – people with varying experiences, backgrounds and interests. Otesha is unique in that each tour member gets the opportunity to organise a region of the tour; learning skills to become strong advocates for living sustainably, develop skills in media communication, leadership, performance whilst living as an on-road sustainable community. The application deadline for tour members for the Melbourne to Canberra tour is 28 November, 2010. For information about applying visit the Otesha (Aust.) website at
