There were 170 videos submitted from 35 different countries, and we came out on top!

 

 

 

About “Adventure is for All”

The video was produced by EcoCamp’s Guest Engagement Officer, Timothy Dhalleine. He is proud to spread a meaningful message!

“Adventure is for All” tells the story of Alvaro Silberstein, a man who became paralyzed ten years ago due to a car accident. He once believed he would never be able to enjoy outdoor adventures again.

This all changed when Alvaro discovered a special hiking wheelchair. He became the first person to hike the “W” trek in Torres Del Paine National Park in a wheelchair.

What really makes this story special is what happened next. Alvaro founded “Wheel the World,” an organization working to increase awareness and travel accessibility for individuals with disabilities. EcoCamp now keeps a hiking wheelchair in its facilities and gives access to anyone who needs it.

This is the second award we have won since the video’s release in August 2018, and we are so happy to receive such wonderful recognition. Let’s continue to spread the message about inclusion in tourism!
