Feet of Green was launched in 2008 as an inspirational initiative: * To help focus the attention of as many people as possible, especially the young, on the fast changing global environmental challenges that we all face. * To motivate by example, showing both the young and the not so young that if you really want to do something and you research and focus yourself on the challenge, nothing is out of reach. * To demonstrate to children how determination and commitment combined with training and ability can enable them to achieve in the field of sports and adventure. * To enable supporting organisations to demonstrate how they are investing significantly in a positive way in order to minimise any negative impact on the natural environment.

The Coolest Classroom in the World...

The first initiative which takes place in 2008 is the crossing of Greenland in May by Alan Chambers MBE and Peter Herbert. They will lead what is aiming to be the largest ever British polar expedition focused on education. The objective is to cross one of the world's largest glaciers and bring the experience to the classrooms of the United Kingdom and beyond.

The journey distance is approximately 600 kilometers and will last around 40 days. The team will endure some of the most extreme weather conditions known to man whilst on the icecap.
