join us for a once in a lifetime expedition to a remote, inspiring paradise.
Danjugan island, wilderness sanctuary
Dec 2 - 9, 2017
After a successful voyage through the Palawan islands in February, we will return to the Philippines this December ready to undertake an epic project, ROGUE PLASTIC. This time, we shall be exploring the diverse and fascinating Negros region, from Bacolod city to Dumaguete. Calling Danjugan island our wilderness home for the five day VOPO Brainmelt intellectual series.
On this journey you will enter a realm vastly different from a typical holiday, in some of the most pristine, undeveloped places. Together with our fantastic partners, Danjugan Sanctuary and The Philippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation, Inc. (PRRCFI), you will be lead through a cultural delight, surrounded by natural phenomena with the unique opportunity to use our Brainmelt systems-thinking approach and design framework to create tangible, positive change with a passionate team of global leaders.
VOPO Expeditions were conceptualised to address social and environmental challenges around the world, by bringing skilled humans, adventurers & innovative minds together from across the world and within the host country for an experience like no other. The itinerary is designed to connect, intellectually stimulate and inspire new ways of tackling some of the worlds biggest feats. All in a pristine setting with curious company who are eager to dive deep, get exploring and bask in the glory of nature.
As air travel is a huge contributor to environmental degradation, we have developed an imperative partnership to account for the impact of all miles (revealed soon). This is also key to our mission, exploring unintended consequences and addressing systems rather than symptoms. Additionally, the expeditions offer a positive alternative to traditional accommodation, staying at locations that are sustainable, off the grid and in harmony with nature.
