What is Evazion?
Find out more about EVAZION.
If we were looking for a turning point in our collective way of traveling, the crisis and the pandemic we have just gone through could be the trigger. For a few months, the world stopped, no more planes, no more travel, no more tourism. Nature took back its rights, quickly and everywhere, giving us a lesson of humility that we must seize. The micro-adventure is gaining ground and we are rediscovering the landscapes that surround us. We don't need to go far from home to live and share great moments.
However, mass tourism, even by van, is no longer acceptable. Crowded spots, litter, wasted landscapes... The traveler is no longer just a consumer, he has a place to take in the ecosystem as a steward. We can see today's traveler, whether on foot, by bike or in a van, as an important actor with a role to play and a responsibility towards the environment. His place must be respectful and positive in order not to leave a negative trace.
The experience of being a nomad in the wilderness can transform us and make us more humble. It puts us back in our place in the earth's ecosystem and allows us to better see, listen and respect. By de-cluttering, we are forced to see our surroundings more clearly, which leads us to respect our environment more.
WE BELIEVE HUMANS IN NATURE BRING OUT THE BEST OF HUMAN NATURE
Just as eco-places, inhabited spaces in nature that function on ecological principles, why couldn't we apply these same principles to bivouac sites? Why should we let our stopping points, sharing and exchanges with other travelers deteriorate with each passage?
In a context where humans are seeking to come together as a community of interest and promote the principles of cooperation and mutual aid, it is essential to re-imagine our approach to travel. We must find a way to satisfy our thirst for exploration and escape while contributing to a virtuous circle where the entire ecosystem can benefit.
What if taking care of our environment meant buying land collectively, sharing it with other travelers who share similar values and creating the first community of nomadic guardians of natural spaces?
It is time to move from simply showing our love for nature to taking concrete action to protect it. As nomadic travelers, we witness the impact we have on the places we visit when we are too many. We need to reclaim our role and move from spectator to actor, from consumer to steward. We must protect the most beautiful places in our regions so that our children can enjoy them as well.
AND IF THE TRAVELER BECAME A GUARDIAN?
Twice a month, let yourself be transported
by the little letter of EVAZION!
To marvel. Travelling. Taking care. For each other and for our living space, our environment. This is not the new way to travel. It is the only way that should now resonate.
