Ride To Learn features educational resources for young people on the topics of global citizenship, cultural diversity, environmental sustainability, and the origin of everyday things. The program follows a 30,000-kilometre circumnavigation of the world by bicycle, enabling participants to engage with the stories of a global network of contributing partners—including farmers, designers, artisans, and factory workers—who are involved in the production of everyday items: footwear, clothing, and bicycles.
Young people are intimately familiar with what they wear on their backs and feet. Such objects are thus an accessible and engaging point of inquiry into the environmental and social impacts of production. Ride To Learn invites students to brainstorm solutions to global challenges such as resource depletion, water shortage, and the ethical treatment of people and animals.
The program’s production team work closely with the education team to deliver material that is engaging, thought-provoking, learner-driven, and humanely actionable. This is a live program, material will be added as we cycle together around the world. As the program is dynamic and reciprocal - you can help shape what we learn by asking us questions as the adventure rolls out.
Ride To Learn is part of the To Learn adventure series brought to you by an Australian-based organisation, ismotion. Look out for future Surf To Learn, Sail To Learn, and Run To Learn programs.
