The history of our planet has lasted billions of years, and the reality of climate change has the power to radically reshape our future. The need for massive action to combat this issue has never been more important. In partnership with 2041 and ClimateForce, we will be journeying back to Antarctica on a special expedition to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the human discovery of Antarctica by an Imperial Russian Navy expedition. Join our team on this special voyage that equips leaders with the resources and actionable solutions to become a part of a global force of change.
In November 2021, 2041 will reunite with The Explorer’s Passage, a pioneer in adventure travel, and renew focus on this strategic hotspot of climate change – the Antarctic – the place that nearly took Robert’s life some 28 years ago. Aligning our vision and passions, the mission is to use adventure as a vehicle to preserve our planet. It is important that we go to Antarctica and observe the changes that are happening so that we ensure that we can return home and become advocates for this last great wilderness on earth!
Over the last 15 years, Robert, Barney, and the 2041 leadership team have guided more than 3,500 people to the Polar Regions on various expeditions. No other individuals have a stronger record of success and experience in leading ventures in the Polar Regions.
In joining the CFA20 expedition, you become part of a vast movement of change leaders from across the globe. With thousands of 2041 alumni in over 100 countries, you will have access to a diverse set of ideas, resources, and connections to become champions for a more sustainable future.
Our renowned ‘Leadership on the Edge’ program consists of a unique blend of leadership development, up-to-date climate change training, and sustainability education. We incorporate workshops on storytelling, writing, presentation, and public speaking to help guide you on your leadership journey. Through completing this program our alumni have used our training as a catalyst to enhance their personal and professional development. This is a Certified CarbonNeutral Voyage.
Together, with The Explorer’s Passage, we have announced the creation of the Arctic Carbon Negative Initiative (ACNI). The goal of ACNI is to establish a set of C02 standard protocols for the global travel industry to adhere to when embarking on sea expeditions to the Arctic to ensure that each voyage is Carbon Negative. We will be working with businesses, governments, and industries across the globe to protect the future of our planet.
