Do you have a a strong understanding of what drives the mindset and technical workings of all social media platforms and the marketing instincts to know what to say, when, where and how? Do you understand the power of social media in linking with a strategic fundraising campaign and can maintain the functionality of out foundtion’s website?

We are looking for the right person, with the tuned in mind-set to head our social media campaign for a documentary film and docu series project focused on sustainable tourism and sustainable living.

Our Project

With its newest project ‘Sustainable Forces of Tradition – Back to Basics’, Adventure4ever’s team will be travelling across Europe and Turkey in search of self-sustainable remote villages, away from mass tourism, where local communities have made a conscious choice to work with the environment rather than against it. They represent those who hold true to traditional values, rejecting industrialisation and despite the costs & sacrifices, choose only to look at the rewards of maintaining a self-sustainable way of life.

Our project with take us to 17 countries across Europe and Turkey, travelling approximately +/- 18,000 kms, producing a documentary film series and select feature stories for on-line media, doing regular podcasts and live streaming with full activity on all social media platforms to bring unique, adventurous and alternative choices for future responsible travel where the destination is as important as the journey itself. 

We will challenge ourselves to travel as sustainably as possible and when on location not only film but learn, ourselves, the many choices and alternatives we all have that will help pave the road to a healthier environment through responsible and thoughtful travel.

Who are We?

Adventure4ever.com seeks the unknown, seeks adventures that takes you to places you just might not think about. Created in spirit in 1999, Adventure4ever became official in 2001 with its primary focus to create feature stories internationally, capturing the world’s many opportunities in outdoor adventure, travel and diving. Whether camping or glamping stories, extreme adventure activities from high alpine trekking in Germany and Italy, to glacier rescues in Austria and even jungle survival in Borneo, to world renowned diving in Raja Ampat West Papua, we took the reader around the world providing inspiration for their next journey Our stories were widely read in many international magazines from National Geographic Traveller, to As Adventure Belgium, Outdoor Germany, Paddle World, Outdoor Magazine NL, plus many more. During this period and until 2015 Adventure4ever also took a huge step in bringing some of the experiences to documentary film while continuing to a lesser degree creating feature stories. As the print medium was quickly dissolving to be taken over by on-line ‘storytelling’, Adventure4ever.com began to rebuild and focus on new directions, with its priority the environment. Adventure4ever.com is now a Foundation (i.o.) and is predominantly ‘project driven’. It’s current project ‘Sustainable Forces of Tradition – Back to Basics’, is an important one, speaking out about the manner and purpose in which people travel and where they travel. We have chosen this direction in order to use our voice and years of travel experience for a relevant and important purpose; helping travellers discover how to take action in contributing to responsible travel for a better future.

The Social Media Campaign

Social Media has become one of the primary sources of getting a message out to the largest possible audience. From businesses, advertisers, celebrities, to just normal everyday people, most of us use social media to get our message out there or to find out more about what’s going on! It not only reaches the masses but it is affordable. Make no mistake though, despite all the benefits and the potential to reach a lot of people, it is busy in cyberspace and hugely competitive to make a project, an idea, stand out plus raise money at the same time. If you believe you can find your way around all social media platforms, talk the talk and walk the walk in our cyber-space world of communications, are adventurous, passionate about travel, environmentally conscious and consider yourself a hot-shot in developing and maintaining a strong social media campaign that will not only get the message out there but be the primary force in raising funds to realise our project goals, then this may be your opportunity to shine!

Our Project Team

At the moment our team is working on a fully volunteer basis and has succeeded in the further development of the project mission and goals, creative content, route planning and action plan. Visibility on social media and fundraising are now our top priorities. We have a plan of action in mind; however, we currently miss that special person who has the savvy, confidence, an entrepreneurial spirit and experience with social media to develop and present a hot-shot campaign that will bring us not only individual followers & influencers, but also combine our fundraising campaign with social media to bring our financial partners to the forefront. We need a strategic thinker who will jump right in to get our message and the importance of this project out there in a thriving digital community.

Our producer and media team of cinematographers/videographers, media presenters and financial management will provide you with promotional/informational video clips and project information to assist you in getting started. We need to be out there on environmental discussion platforms, educational programs, speaking to the world about this unique project. You will work hand in hand with the project leader and our head of fundraising to plan and create the best way to attract sponsors, donors and as large a following as possible to spread our message.

Now this all sounds grand and perhaps makes us look like a ‘well-greased’ production company with a huge number of resources. Well, in fact we are quite small but bursting with enthusiasm, commitment, talent and the unquestioned determination to make this project work.
