To Prove Humans Could Be Happier With Simpler Lives, She Came Up With An Elaborate Experiment

Hannah Engelkamp took a hike with a purpose: "My main ethical drive is really about looking hard at what we think we need, or deserve, or 'should' have.

You're dying to know more about the donkey, right? Hannah told me that "people were really excited to see a strong, healthy, working animal — it's so rare now. We walked through old fishing villages that had still been using donkeys to collect cockles up to only 30 years ago, and it was quite emotional for the people living there. Many of the paths we walked were old roads that would have had donkeys walking and working along them for 2,000 years."
