You have a dream.

You want to become successful and live a long, full and happy life.

But how would you make your dream come true if the world around you was not the same anymore? Climate change, global warming, ozone holes in the sky, exhaust pollution, acid rains, neglected garbage… They are the real dangers that stand on your way to living your dream. They are the monsters no movie or game superheroes can fight and win.

But YOU CAN. By making a step towards Nature.

We have brought to you someone special who will help you make this step. Don’t miss our unique charity event called Towards Nature dedicated to fighting climate change.

It's the most interesting 'lecture on Environment' you may have ever heard.

We have invited an amazing speaker - Johan Ernst Nilson! Johan is a well-known world traveler and a Guinness record holder. He’s been in the highest, deepest, hottest, coldest, awesomest and… uncoolest places on Earth you can imagine! His presentations are a feast for the eyes and ears. And a food for thought. Johan is going to share his fantastic traveler’s experiences with you and inspire you to make the world you live in a better place.

It will be the first-ever visit of Mr. Nilson to Marbella.

What will Johan talk about?

What do we need to do to reach our goals?
"You can never reach a summit without taking some kind of risk"
Adventure - "as everything that takes you out of your Comfort Zone"
What do we need to do to reach our dreams in life?
How to reach your peak performance?
Our true potential
How to reach balance in life?
What is motivation strategy?

Johan Ernst Nilson started his career as an explorer and motivational speaker 20 years ago after a bet with a friend.

The question was:

“Could a person with the lowest grade in gymnastics bike from Sweden to Africa?”

The life Johan Ernst Nilson is all about finding your dreams and reaching your goals. When he was 15 years old, he saw a man playing the piano on the TV. He asked his parents what he needed to do to play like that and they told him to stay motivated and to practice. Three years later Johan Ernst had a job as a professional pianist. To learn how to play the piano was his first adventure.

So what is an adventure?

“Everything you do that takes you outside your Comfort Zone is an adventure. It does not have to be to climb Mount Everest or to ski to South Pole. Adventures are very individual. A normal day for you can be an adventure for someone else. Adventures has always been something that attracts humans. To do an adventure is to take a risk and risk taking is evolution. We grow through our mistakes and we build pride by daring. You can never reach a summit without taking some kind of risk.”
