Last week I was supposed to begin my walk from Denmark to China, but due to a knee injury and a complete lack of preparation, because of a thight schedule, I unfortunately had to postpone.
Throughout November I got a lot of international media attention because of my story. I received, and still do, a lot of private messages from lonely people all over the world, asking me to somehow help them.
I feel a responsibility and that is why I want to walk beyond the Danish border to raise international awarness about loneliness and mental health.
I have reassessed my project From Denmark to China and decided to make some changes. - Right now, I need to focus on my physical and mental health, before I go anywhere in the world. That is why my next deadline will be 2019. - I will reuse the concept of my previous walk from Copenhagen to Aarhus, which was, that I under no circumstances was allowed to walk, unless accompanied by another person. I want to emphasize the importance of human interaction, social responsibility and community. - The name will change from From Denmark to China to The International Social Walk. - The logo will change as well. ✌
