The above itinerary constitutes the North America segment of the HOPE World Tour. The itineraries of other segments to follow when scheduled. Following are the principal activities of the road tour (other than to drive more than 20,000 km solo):

1. Video/slideshow presentations on tiger, bear, whale, seal, elephant and rhinoceros conservation - a culmination of four intense years of campaigning include three trips to India. In addition to publicizing the tigers plight, it also serves to show how minute this problem is on the scale of the Six Planetary Diseases (just one endangered species out of thousands in the "Wasting Disease" category), yet how enormous it is on the human scale, and how grossly underfunded the save-the-tiger movement currently is. This in turn illustrates how grossly underfunded almost all environmental projects are in general, and how incredibly astronomic the Six Planetary Diseases truly are, and, in total, how hopelessly underfunded the heal our planet Earth movement truly is.

2. Talks on Omniscientific Cosmology - a new all-sciences-based philosophical system for the new millennium.

3. Fund raising: The tour needs to be financially self-sustaining. First, its cost must be at most minimal. During the 1996 Bear Referendum road tour, Toney Mars was billeted in every city without exception, with lecture halls donated by most host organizations, and many delicious home-cooked dinners! In the HOPE tour, the illustrated talks will be free admission, with a donation round during the Q&A after the slideshow. 

4. Last but far from least, media - newspapers, TV, radio and magazines: According to experience (93,000 signatures in 90 days during the 1996 Bear Referendum project), a petition is not worth much more than the paper it is signed on UNLESS it propels a wave of media, better yet, tsunami, towards the objective. The 8-week, 12,000 km Bear Referendum road tour produced about 150 newspaper articles throughout the province of BC, and dozens of hours of radio and TV interviews. This brought the issue of bear hunting in specific and trophy hunting in general to the forefront of the provinces consciousness. I believe it has kick started a process that will end in the banning of Grizzly bear hunting within years and the banning of "big game trophy hunting" within decades. 

Host organizations will receive honorable mention in media interviews. 

We need a New Millennium Vision. The New World Order isnt it. We believe the HOPE Petition and the OMNI-SCIENCE philosophy are the first steps in the right direction for our planet Earth.
