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 support of the 2041 mission, Robert will be leading a global team 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 me 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, Robert will be leading a global team to a hotspot of climate change – the Antarctic – the place that nearly took his life 35 years ago. 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 25 years, Robert has guided more than 4,000 people to the Polar Regions on various expeditions. No other individual has a stronger record of success and experience in leading ventures in the Polar Regions.
In joining the CFA21 expedition, you become part of a vast movement of change leaders from across the globe. With thousands of 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.
Together, with The Explorer’s Passage, Robert has announced the creation of the Polar Carbon Negative Initiative (PCNI). The goal of PCNI is to establish a set of C02 standard protocols for the global travel industry to adhere to when embarking on sea expeditions to the Polar Regions 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.
