"Climate change is a huge problem we face today. But I like to see it as an opportunity to change things as they are." - Raphaël Domjan

Some time ago, circumnavigating the world was a huge undertaking and a great adventure. Today it is no longer a feat. But if you do it on a ship, it becomes more adventurous. If you are now on a ship, which is only powered by solar energy, you come very close to the adventures of past times. Our guest today in this episode has done just that. The PlanetSolar project was born from a crazy idea. From 2010 to 2012 on a catamaran with more than 500 square meters of solar panels on the roof, Raphaël Domjan has travelled around the world starting from Monaco.

With the PlanetSolar project, his current SolarStratos project and a number of other projects, Raphaël wants to show what is possible with solar energy. He has made it his life's work to promote renewable energies and especially solar energy as far as possible. I think it needs pioneers like Raphaël Domjan, who believe in something so strongly and put ideas into practice. This is really very inspiring and I hope that this conversation will encourage some people to do exactly what he or she believes in.

In this episode Raphaël talks about his adventures and his current project SolarStratos. It was really very interesting to hear what he is doing and what his plans for the future are. I highly recommend to have a look at the links in the show notes to get a deeper picture of his projects.

Thanks for listening and hear you next time,
