THE hunt is on to find 10 young people to journey to Antarctica on what will be the world’s first carbon negative expedition of its kind.

Adventurers Dwayne Fields and Phoebe Smith have successfully raised enough funds for their #WeTwo Foundation to take a group of ten, underprivileged, 16–18-year-olds, to the Antarctic Peninsula by expedition ship in February 2022.

The pair formed #WeTwo after meeting at Countryfile Live where they were asked to take part in a panel discussing barriers to getting into the outdoors and having adventures.

Before the young people go they will 'pay it forward' - not with cash but by committing to take part in initiatives close to home to improve their local area.

This will include rewilding projects, removing plastics from saplings, cleaning rivers, beaches and green spaces, and becoming local ambassadors for the environment.

The entire team with plant enough trees to ensure their trip to Antarctica will be entirely carbon neutral and, in time, carbon negative.

Phoebe said: “We are determined this inaugural trip to Antarctica, will be the first #WeTwo Foundation journey of many.”

Dwayne added: “We are looking for people who are driven, passionate, and who want to make a difference, not just in their own lives but for the communities in which they live,”

Two of the young people will definitely be Scouts. The Vasey Family Trust has kindly donated enough to support two places on the trip.

To nominate a young person go to and complete the pop-up form.
