Thousands of international tourists flock to Indonesia annually. Although, much of the remote regions of this surfers heaven are without any waste management procedures or infrastructure. After meeting with and joining forces with our partners across the Mentawai islands in December 2017, we will return. This time ready to undertake an epic project tackling ocean plastic pollution. You will work directly in implementing solutions that will promote the sustainable development of the region.
The Mentawai appears, when looking at it from the seat of a traditional dugout canoe, like an enchanted land. A heavily forested archipelago of dense jungles, unique fauna and flora that are often exposed to some of the most perfect waves in the world.
Join us for a 9 day Expedition, where you will be intimately connected to Mentawai ancient wisdom and culture. Guided through a curated experience that deep dives into ecology, economics and politics. Spoilt with perfect barrels, ocean pools for free-diving sessions and jungle treks that will keep you occupied when you're not immersed in the facets of implementing the exciting first stage of #RoguePlastic in Palau Siberut, Palau Masokut and Pei Pei village.

Through our travels, we let a lot of extraordinary landscapes vanish into a blur outside the windows. One moment present, the other, gone. On this journey, you will enter a realm vastly different from your typical holiday, in some of the most pristine, undeveloped places.
This experience will be physically challenging, mentally stimulating and spiritually abundant. You will be exposed to the true wilderness of the Indonesian jungle and all its glory.
Together with our fantastic partners, you will have the unique opportunity to use our Brainmelt™ and Wildesign™ challenge-solving method to create tangible, positive change with a passionate team of creative and innovative individuals.
YAYASAN Suku Mentawai
As part of the VOPO X Mentawai package, we will provide our participants with the documentary As Worlds Divide. It will provide incredible context and background to the social-political challenges faced in the region.
Filmed over an 8-year period, the doco will take you through an intimate journey inside the life of the indigenous Mentawai people who are loosing their connection with their land and culture.
