The Andean Geotrail 2008-2009 has several well-defined aims:
- To increase public awareness of the importance of Earth Sciences in our society and engage the public’s role in the protection of the Earth.
- To share our passion and fascination of our planet with the public, and particularly youngsters, by showing them the beauty of our planet.
- To meet the local Andean population to understand the importance of the geosciences in the Andean countries and the direct implications of the exploitation of the natural resources on their every day life.
- To live a human and sporting adventure through a unique experience from which we will gain great personal enrichment. The geotrail will also allow us to discover ourselves by pushing our limits.
