„When I saw the Earth from the moon, I understood the life-critical balance between humans and our fragile home planet, and the importance of conserving our resources on Earth as we learn to harness resources in space.“
„I left my footprint on the moon, but the question is what footprint will we leave on our planet.“
„Let’s start a new human adventure based on moderation, intelligence and sharing, and let us start that adventure with Opel Project Earth.“
„The expedition will visit four of the most endangered climate zones within just four weeks and offers the rare opportunity to do field work with the scientists at each destination.“
„This expedition is a great and unique opportunity for the next generation of scientists, and therefore I am asking you, the young scientists of Europe to apply to become a member of this outstanding Project Earth expedition.“
