The Patrons of the Expedition
Brigitte Malou, Managing Drector of the Domain of the Caves of Han
The Domaines des Grottes de Han is right in the middle between Bert (in Leuven, Belgium) and his expedition team mate Raphael Fiegen (in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg). I am happy they use the Domaine as a meeting point to prepare for the expedition. As board member of GoodPlanet Belgium and administrator of a wild animal reserve, I fully share with Bert and Raphaël the passion for nature and wildlife. I fully support their expedition and the efforts of this Luxembourg-Belgium team to raise funds for GoodPlanet Belgium.
Happy trails Bert and Raphaël
Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Photographer and film director
I am happy and honored to be the patron of Bert Poffé’ and Raphael Fiegen’s “Kungsleden Dogsled Expedition 2016”.
I know Bert from his PR work for GoodPlanet Belgium, but I also know him as a passionate explorer, advocating for the environment and the indigenous peoples around the world. In fact we both try to contribute to making this planet a GoodPlanet, I use camera’s and images, Bert inspires through his expeditions and adventures. Bert’s expedition partner, dogsledder Raphael Fiegen is involved in Greenpeace Luxembourg. Apart from reaching their personal goals, the expedition team wants to raise funds for the “nature reconnection” projects of GoodPlanet. No doubt Raphael and Bert will need perseverance and motivation to cope with the Arctic’s harsh environment that they are heading into this coming February. Your gift to GoodPlanet Belgium will be that extra motivation for them.
Please support them!
