Bhutan’s glaciers are on course to disappear in the next 50 years. Jamyang has carried his bike and trekked for an average of 9 hours a day for 7 straight days to get to a Himalayan glacier. He picked up a discarded plastic bottle along the way and used it to source melt water from the glacier. The bottle stands for plastic pollution and the melt-water inside represents the rapidly melting Himalayan glaciers.

We have less than 10 years left to act before crossing an irreversible tipping point in the climate crisis. The Constitution of Bhutan decrees that every citizen is a trustee of the environment. As a trustee, Jamyang has pledged to bike around the world until the end of the decade, carrying this bottle as a symbol for the climate crisis and demand urgent action from the world leaders and businesses.

Jamyang will commence the decade long campaign from Bhutan. He will bike across Bhutan, carrying the bottle with glacial melt water, stopping in schools and colleges along the way to create awareness on the climate crisis and inspire action. A film crew will follow him in an electric support vehicle and film the journey into a documentary series.
