TOPtoTOP Global Climate Expedition
Over more than 16 years, Dario & Sabine Schwörer and their family have circumnavigated our blue planet to every climate zone growing our awareness of climate change and its effect on communities.
A supporter who believed strongly in the mission and the passion of Dario and Sabine Schwörer to inform the world about climate change, was one of many giving a loan to purchase Pachamama. He needs urgently his money back and agreed that he is satisfied when they pay back the amount of Euro 90,000. Please donate so the Schwörers can continue on their important mission to Inspire Youth To Save Our Planet.
Pachamama is TOPtoTOP’s principle means of transportation around the world. There is little more sustainable means of transport than a sailing vessel, which doubles as the Schwörer’s home. But funding Pachamama alone is not enough to ensure TOPtoTOP’s continued work in the future.
This fall, TOPtoTOP is scheduled to make climate change presentations at institutions throughout New England, including Natural Resource Council of Maine, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Massachusetts, Boston Museum of Science and New England Aquarium. A five-day partnership with Mystic Aquarium follows, including a multi-event climate summit, meetings with Boys & Girls Clubs and local school presentations at every destination. Mystic and TOPtoTOP are also collaborating on education program curriculum development, distance learning opportunities and more to bring TOPtoTOP’s field work and experiential learning to life for Mystic Aquarium’s students, guests and online visitors.
This important work doesn’t come without costs. And today we’re asking you to consider supporting TOPtoTOP on their journey to Explore – Inspire – Act!

My name is Andri and I am playing the violin to safe the Oceans.
I was born on the “TOP to TOP” Expedition sailboat "Pachamama". "Pachamama" means mother earth in Inka language.
She is the only home also for my four other sisters and brother and for my mom and dad. We shared our home so far with volunteers from 48 nations joining our campaign for a better planet.
