Passion, society tells us to follow ours ( though in most cases restrains us from it). It’s the reason we wake up in the morning and continue with our mediocre lives, we cling to it, hoping that one day we will be able to chase our passion with all of our time, money and heart. Well for French Biologist Stephane Pauquet, that day has come.
With the help of Quechua, a French, outdoor equipment company, Pauquet was able to present his vision, his life and his passion of Ec0-Conservation to the public. The project is called Greenvest, a company that mediates conservation donations and projects in South America by finding benefactors, and delivering the necessary products their donations provide directly to the source. The goal of the company is to create a network of ecologically minded individuals and programs to sustain and build upon projects being done in the name conservation.
The video documents Pauquet’s work, which takes him from frigid mountain top to tropical rainforest. Not only does our French philanthropist get to travel to foreign and exotic landscapes, he does so knowing he will be compensated in both pocket and karma, sounds pretty nice right?
When he speaks, he speaks with an earnestness that replicates his work and goals. We all should be so lucky to live as Pauquet does, following our passion, succeeding in it and leaving a legacy that inspires others to do the same.
