The original idea behind the World Path is born in 2011 in Thunder Bay (Ontario), while 3 high-school friends expressed the dream of “making a big journey through the world when they will be adults, discovering and sharing with people from all the continents.”
This dream took a new perspective when in 2015, thanks to his collaboration with 4 differents organizations, Rodrigue wanted to give a deeper and more universal meaning to this journey :
Create a global path passing through all the continent and most of the countries, opened to all travelers whiling to discover other cultures and realities on this blue planet while contributing on their way to build impactful local change.
The 4 organizations that inspired the world path and its values (from left to right): EFIL (European Federation of intercultural learning, AFS Intercultural Programs, EEUdF (Eclaireurs Eclaireuses Unionistes de France) and Erasmus+ (European Voluntary Programs)
This project connected with Eudaimonpedia is also our main guideline to help to reach a Global Humanist & Multicultural Civilisation.
What looks like the World Path?
In 2015, the World Path was a 154 countries crossing global path, here is its first projection :
This doesn’t mean that it is the only strict path, because many sub-pathes & shortcuts are passing throught the others places.
This main path is the spine of the “Eudaimon Net“, the goal is to see most of the realities of our world and find technical and spiritual solutions to the global issues we are facing is this century.
⚠️ Warning : The path, the subpathes and the shortcuts are not frozed in time and space, they can evolved with new changemakers joining but also local military conflicts.
Everyone sharing our values & ethics is invited to join the adventure, for the whole trip or part of it, before or after us, always celebrating life, Earth, cultures & exchange, to get to a world in which everyone can have access to the fundamentals & where countries are just regions of a peaceful, fair & sustainable world.
Note : The sub-paths are not yet integrated, they will be integrated as soon as possible
