1 Man

and the longest friendship bond of the world

Friends between the Black Forest
and the Olympics 2020 in Tokyo

The connections between people basically give every life its true value. As a courageous team builder at work, in politics as well as in sport, I see an immense lack of this in our world.

But just as many nations lack the will to cooperate, I have lost a bit of self-love and trust in others. So I thought perhaps it would be a good idea to knit a joint project out of this.

As a 36-year-old bundle of energy, for which the joy of life cannot be way too adventurous, I, therefore, set off on foot on a journey to the friends of this world. Across Europe and Asia to the Olympics 2020, the meeting of sports and team spirit.

And this also becomes a formative added value for the world community, there are two symbolic goals. Read more on the following pages...

I am looking forward to your feedback and participation afterward.

Greetings, Christian Adeler


For me, it will be a sporty, meditative and multi-faceted event. For the world at large, it could be a sign of more cooperation.

1 trip
16'000 kilometers
As "1st World trail", which connects (at least) 16 countries, my biggest challenge so far could also be a (hiking) path full of inspiration for others.
1 bracelet
16'000 meters
From thousands of individuals sent to me, I knot, at best with record length, the symbol of friendship between people.
1 way
16 thinkstones
They mark the course of the path and open up places of encouragement in order to illuminate one's own perspectives anew.

In order to be able to present this message of international understanding to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the opening gala of the Olympics, I need your cooperation.

So get ready and make schools, clubs and your friends, families, and colleagues aware of it.

It would be a pleasure for me to invite the person with the most extraordinary delivery to Japan.

Here are the collection points.

1st World-trail
16 Thinkstones

The route, which is made up of many experience reports on the well-known "Silk Road", offers a mix of different climatic, cultural and natural zones.

The memorial stones show intermediate goals and should make spaces for inspiration. The chosen locations have historical as well as culinary very special appeals, in order to think about the own points of view and the world once again.

On 14 March 2019, to celebrate Albert Einstein's 140th birthday, I started the journey. Like no one else he stood for a change of perspective, skill, and perseverance; qualities that are indispensable on such a journey.
