His story is incredibly remarkable. For almost three decades, John Francis has been a planetwalker, traveling the globe by foot and sail with a message of environmental respect and responsibility (for 17 of those years without speaking). During his monumental, silent trek, he earned an MA in environmental studies and a PhD in land resources. Today his Planetwalk foundation consults on sustainable development and works with educational groups to teach kids about the environment. "Part of the mystery of walking is that the destination is inside us and we really don't know when we arrive until we arrive." -John Francis
