    Fjällräven Polar is a 300km mission across Arctic Scandinavia with huskies. I'm at my most alive when I'm in the wilderness and, as a UK raised Swede, I long to rediscover my native Sweden in its rawest form. It's a personal mission and to show my kids what I - and they - are capable of. To inspire them as the next generation of adventurous explorers, using our bodies as nature intended. I've applied to represent Sweden and Nordic East in this contest. Please vote for me and share the link!

    Are you wondering what to do with your leftover pumpkin this Halloween? Before you ditch the inside scoop, put the flesh to one side and pick a Halloween pumpkin recipe (or any pumpkin for that matter!). This is a great step to take as eco activism becomes more widespread, thanks to people like Greta Thunberg. Halloween pumpkins are beautiful, fun and delicious. But this year, more than 8 million pumpkins will be thrown out uneaten after Halloween festivities - this equals 18,000 tonnes of edible pumpkin flesh! 60% of those buying fresh pumpkins don't use the flesh. So surely we should ask ourselves what to do with leftover pumpkin before sending this innocent produce to the gallows. Simple pumpkin soup - There are so many variations on the classic pumpkin soup. So start with this super simple classic pumpkin soup recipe from Cafe Delights, with potatoes and broth, and go from there. You can then choose to add coconut milk, maple syrup, curry powder, chilli or herbs. Why not try toppings like creme fraiche or cream, toasted seeds, almonds, fresh coriander, pomegranate and more.  Photo: Ella Olsson on Unsplash
