“The Greatest Threat to Our Planet Is the Belief That Someone Else Will Save It.” – Robert Swan, OBE
On December 5, 2014, I was selected as a team member on the International Antarctic Expedition (IAE) 2015, hosted by Robert Swan, OBE, and the 2041 Foundation, that will take place March 13 – 25, 2015. With the carefully selected team, I will explore the Antarctic Peninsula with onboard experts and gain firsthand knowledge of the continent’s fragile ecosystem, today’s issues of climate change, renewable energy, sustainability and how it affects our present and future worldwide.
The International Antarctic Expedition 2015, which hosts Robert Swan’s Leadership on the Edge program, will be an exhilarating and unpredictable adventure – a life changing experience for the international group of men and women joining Robert Swan and the 2041 team to the last great wilderness on earth.
On these webpages I will keep you up to date on the exciting journey towards our departure, on fundraising successes and of course – once boarded – on our Antarctic adventure.
Antarctica truly is the last great wilderness on Earth. Do we have the sense to keep at least one place on Earth protected?
I need your help!
To raise the funds for this once in a lifetime opportunity, I need your help! Spread the word, donate and follow me on the journey.
Enabling the dream for someone else as well…
If I can raise funds beyond my personal target, my commitment is to support another candidate in her fundraising.
Robert Swan and the 2041 Foundation are dedicated to supporting women worldwide in their dream of bringing positive change to the societies they live in. I believe in this mission and have therefore committed to help raise funds for IAE candidates from countries with less access to funding.
About the 2041 Foundation
2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE. As the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles, Robert Swan has dedicated his life to the preservation of Antarctica by the promotion of recycling, renewable energy and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change.
2041’s mission is to build on Robert Swan’s dedication by informing, engaging and inspiring the next generation of leaders to take responsibility, to be sustainable, and to know that now is the time for action in policy development, sustainable business generation and future technologies.
