The last unspoiled continent.

The South Pole is located on the Antarctic. This is the last untouched continent of the world. The Antarctic is not owned by anyone. Luckily the Antarctic Convention is in place. Military missions should not be carried out, no raw materials should be mined and nobody should leave waste behind. How swell is that! That is what the whole world needs. And that is possible, if we collaborate genuinely. We, at Autarco, want to be part of this journey, to help our next generation.

Why is there the need to go to the Antarctic, the cleanest continent in the world? With this clean expedition, it will draw attention to the Antarctic Convention, which is to be extended in 2048 so that’ the thermostat of the world’ is preserved for future generations.

A clean earth and a climate that ensures that the earth is and remains more live-able for the next generations to come. That is why it is necessary to deal with mother nature more sensibly. Nature is cyclical and change is the only constant. And needs to STOP! We need to stop burning raw materials as once they disappear, they never come back as a raw material, never ever again.

A vehicle made from waste.

The Clean2Autartica team wants to drive up and down 2300km to the South Pole with a 100% Autarco solar-powered vehicle, autonomously without outside help. The car is built from waste material like plastic in co-creation, with individuals, government, business and youngsters who use their ideas and creativity to shape the future! It will prove that it is possible to build a car with combined knowledge, purely on solar energy and through clean technology. This first solar expedition team is therefore determined to be the cleanest expedition ever! No waste, no emission! You have to follow your dreams, dare to simply do it. We, Autarco, strongly believe in this philosophy and therefore support this expedition wholeheartedly.
