Svavar Knútur's Awesome and Wonderful Environmental Sootprint Offset Minijog Experience (AWESOME)
Hey hey Guys! Svavar Knútur here.
I really want to do more when touring, than just being a guy that shows up for soundcheck, plays a show and goes to bed, rinse and repeat.
There's three goals I really want to achieve while touring:
1: Keep healthy
2: Grow my relationship with my supporters, fans and friends.
3: Reduce the environmental impact of my touring.
With that in mind, I want to unite those three goals with a new project: Jogging for reforestation.
In 16 cities in my upcoming String spring (String trio) and Frühlingsgefühling's (solo) tour I will meet with willing friends and fans for a light 5-10 Km jog around a park or a neighbourhood. I will pledge one euro per km, and I will ask my fellow joggers to do the same. Every person is responsible for their own donation to a climate cause of their choosing. This will be a perfect way to keep healthy, engage with you guys in a productive way and be environmentally responsible while touring.
If at all possible, we'll have a little cooldown post-jog chill time after the jog, before we hit the showers and I go on stage. We won't be in a hurry and we will not jog faster than the slowest of us. You don't have to be an experienced runner, just willing to be part of the good vibes. I also really look forward to seeing you again in the night. That really makes me feel wonderful :D
This is a pretty complicated project, so I'll need you guys to sign up so I can organise the project better. I might ask some of you to help me to find a nice jogging path, close to the venue or central to your towns, or just a really pretty area for jogging.
Generally we'll be jogging at 17.00 on the weekdays and at around 16.00 on weekends. There may be some exceptions though, and I'll let you guys know. And any changes to the locations we meet up will also be provided as soon as possible. I'll make facebook events for the jog in each city and I would love for you to contribute.
I realise not everyone is able to join and there's issues of inclusion. Not everyone can jog/run or is able to. If you use a wheelchair, just join us, we'll adjust our speed and route to accommodate. But it's of course easier to adjust the route if you let us know in advance. Feel free to bring your bicycle if you just want to join us, cheer, motivate, provide a little soft music and amble along and don't feel like running/jogging. I want this to become a fun tradition for all my upcoming tours.
I will delete all gathered email addresses after the tour, unless you specifically choose for me not to.
So, please sign up if you want to be part of team awesome for Svavar Knútur's Climate Neutral Touring fun time jog.
Please tick here if you want me to keep your email address for further news.
Yes, please don't delete my email.
