LET'S WALK AND TALK FOR #ANTARCTICA2048
On December 12th we will walk THE WALK for the first time! On 7 continents at the same time. From South Africa to Alaska, from Nepal to New Zealand, and all over the Netherlands. We're walking for #ANTARCTICA2048 and we're celebrating the start of The 7B Club. The club that initiated this and of which you are already a member anyway. So, join us and register!
Why Antarctica? Antarctica is the last piece of the "free world" on our planet. In 2048, the fragile continent will lose its protected status. A number of countries think they can claim Antarctica. We at The 7B Club believe it is owned by all 7 billion people on Earth.
The importance of Antarctica is still unknown to many people, for example, it has a key role in the global CO2 problem, due to the gigantic and rapid decrease in the ice surface. In addition, Antarctica is home to the largest freshwater resource in the world and its flora, fauna and resources are invaluable to all of us.
A vulnerable and economically rich area. In good hands with us, ordinary citizens who want the best for the planet and our children, who will soon inherit it.
WALK AND TALK AND UNITE
On December 12th, we walk on all 7 continents for a better world. Here in the Netherlands we walk, talk and connect with 1.5 metres social distancing. At places of your choosing, on the coast, in the woods, on the heath, or simply in the city. We celebrate the first WALK, we celebrate all the pioneers present and their initiatives, and we celebrate the foundation of our new club: The 7B Club.
Time is running out, only 28 years to go. That is why we invite you to join us in taking at least 7 billion symbolic steps for a safe Antarctica and a new fair world for all members of The 7B Club, that’s us!

WE CELEBRATE THE CREATION OF THE 7B CLUB
THE WALK is the first initiative of The 7B Club. 7 billion people together in one club! Together with you, we start the most natural club, of which we are all active members. It’s possible, because you are already a member! Simply because you were born and probably want the best for our planet and each other, just as we do. A club where every person is heard and welcome.
WELCOME TO THE CLUB!
The 7B Club is the stage for all initiatives that contribute to accelerated awareness and change in our society. Our intention is to be the driving force, by bringing as many people and companies together as possible.
THE WALK brings #ANTARCTICA2048 to the attention of citizens, media and politicians. After all, we ourselves are the voice of 7 billion idealists.
So, welcome to the club!
It will be exciting, it will be fun. First THE WALK and then further. There are already concrete registrations from our network for new initiatives. Individuals and entrepreneurs with ideas, that we will share with all members in a newsletter and on the website at a later stage.
This is just the beginning. Sign up now on this website.

WE CELEBRATE ALL THE IDEALISTS
We are extremely delighted and proud to be able to walk this first edition together with special national and international “ambassadors for our new better world”.
THE 7B CLUB IS A CLUB THAT CELEBRATES!
Together we want to "take a moment" for this first edition and get moving for the other big and small social visionaries. Together with you and our little dreams, we want to make big things come true.
We are optimistic, realistic and ambitious but not activists. We believe in stimulating, trying and doing. To celebrate the result afterwards!
Together we can connect everything on this platform for and about 7 billion people.
The 7B Club and THE WALK: “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!”
IN MEMORY OF MARC CORNELISSEN AND PHILIP DE ROO
December 12th, we also walk in memory of these two friends, who passed away in the Arctic. Marc and Philip, pioneers from the very beginning, are our inspiration for the #ANTARCTICA2048
THE WALK will therefore be an annual event on the calendar of The 7B Club. To reflect on these men, but also to continue what they stood for. For this, THE WALK focuses on 2048. The moment when the Antarctic Treaty ends and the vulnerable area is released. If we get #ANTARCTICA2048 seriously on the map, we really will have something to celebrate!

ARE YOU TAKING PART IN THE WALK? CHOOSE YOUR LOCATION FOR 12 DECEMBER 2020.
As many steps as possible for #ANTARCTICA2048! Walk a route that works best for you. That can be anywhere, on the beach, in the dunes, in a park, on a country path or even on your treadmill at the gym. And walk in something blue: jacket, hat, shoes, flag. It doesn’t matter as long as you take steps and keep track of how many steps you have taken. Walking is not a given for everyone. Is walking impossible or difficult for you? Participate in your own way and turn your walk into imaginary steps. THE WALK includes everyone! Join safely (1.5 metres social distancing) with your friends and family.
Count your steps and send them to the Club with a nice selfie!Turn on your pedometer and send your steps to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will show you and all the other participants how many steps we have taken together for #ANTARCTICA2048. We will keep track of the current number of steps on the website. Send a short selfie video of your walk, if it’s nice enough > then see yourself in THE WALK OF FAME on the website!
National and Intercontinental.
THE WALK will take place on all continents on December 12th, 2020. The day on which the Paris Agreement to control climate change was signed. By doing this, together we can take at least 7 billion steps for Antarctica. A small step for you but a huge symbolic step for the preservation of Antarctica. The 7B Club will start with these 7 billion steps. A club where you can be an active member! Along with 7 billion other people!
Imagine it! Just imagine it!
