New Dawn Traders
Project Category: Social Enterprise
The New Dawn Traders plan to curate adventures trading goods by the power of the wind under sail, sharing and daring our way toward a sustainable future.
The vehicle for our journey is the burgeoning sail cargo industry, or as we like to call it the Sail RennaiSENSE. Through the physical act of trading goods between countries we will also be trading in skills, knowledge and culture. The ship is not only a perfect metaphor for this voyage of discovery, but is itself a microcosm of social and ecological issues. Through our human-scale adventures, both on-board the ship, in port and in-between voyages we will find and develop tools that will be of interest far beyond our own needs.
Our ultimate hope is to inspire change. Weve seen and heard enough about what is NOT working and feel it is high-time to focus efforts on what MIGHT work, and to do so in a way that inspires others to have a go too. Environmental and social change for the better, requires a groundswell of many individual efforts – small and large and we hope to motivate this through documenting and sharing our own path towards these collective goals. We hope to build empathy amongst culturally diverse people through innovative storytelling and to equip people with the knowledge and tools so that they may make positive changes for themselves. We believe that the path to innovative sustainable solutions is through active experimentation. With our varied backgrounds, as scientists, farmers, artists, sailors, event producers, social entrepreneurs, chefs and more, New Dawn Traders will create a flamboyant and multi-sensory campaign for a healthy, happy, enchanted and fair planet.
In short, our project is divided into two, mutually supported departments: Trading by Sail and Storytelling.
