The sailing experience with Ayaite is the beginning of a way more crazy idea or lets say a big dream and its time to make it become true:
A sailing vessel that promotes fair and sustainable exchange of goods, people and knowledge between at least 2 continents (Latin America and Europe) and also in between regions like the Amazon and big cities like Sao Paulo in Brazil. Furthermore host people that want to experience and learn how to move with the power of nature and without using fossil fuels.
Various cooperatives are trying to create an alternative to existing structures. For example, food cooperatives are buying regionally and fairly produced food in their region and foster the local community. However, some products are not in the area and transportation is often an insurmountable hurdle. Similarly, with regard to airline tickets and the ability to travel, access is limited for some people and goods from certain groups (certification processes are expensive, etc.)
The Fair-Boat will provide transport for:
sustainable products of small producers and cooperatives
open source technologies and bike machines
an open database and seed bank and documentary movie archive
a mobile outdoor cinema powered by bike machines
an international and inclusive crew and volunteers and their stories
big dreams and what will come up in the cooperation.
