We just received a message of encouragement from the European Commissioner for the Environment, Mr Janez Potočnik:
“I am happy to send a message of support to Giacomo De Stefano, the Man on the River.
Your journey from London to Istanbul is an example to us all of how we can treat the environment more respectfully. As European Commissioner for the Environment, I know just how important it is that we pay more attention to our ecosystems and to the biodiversity we depend on so much – sometimes without even realizing it! You have found a gentle and effective way of reminding us just how much we have to lose.
From a ‘Man in Brussels’, to the ‘Man on the River’, I wish you the best of luck in your journey – it’s a worthwhile one!”
A warm thank you to Mr Potočnik from Giacomo and all the team!
