IAE/ClimateForce: Arctic 2019 

 

The Story

The Story 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.  Join our team on this special voyage that equips leaders with resources and actionable solutions to become a part of a global force of change.

IAE/ClimateForce: Arctic 2019

Twenty-eight years ago, and 1,000 kilometers away from the safety of land is where disaster struck. A young Robert Swan was standing on what should be a six-foot-thick sheet of ice mere steps from the North Pole, when the ice of the Arctic Ocean began to melt beneath his feet… four months earlier in the season before it ever had in history.

Robert and his crew of explorers eventually made it out alive, but the moment never escaped him. He went on to start the 2041 Foundation, dedicating his life to the preservation of the polar regions through the promotion of sustainability practices.

In November 2017, Robert and his 22-year-old son Barney attempted to become the first people in history to walk to the South Pole powered entirely by renewable energy. Over the course of the 60-day expedition they encountered an Antarctica that was melting beneath their feet. It was here that they knew that they needed to expand the mission of 2041 to those areas around the globe that climate change is having the most effect on.

The Mission Heads North!

In June 2019, 2041 will reunite with The Explorer’s Passage, a pioneer in adventure travel, and renew focus on this strategic hotspot of climate change – the Arctic – 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 the Arctic and observe the changes that are happening so that we ensure that these extreme environmental conditions never happen in Antarctica. We do plan to one day return to Antarctica with the ClimateForce Team once we have a more clear sense of what is going on in these strategic hotspots across the globe.

Unparalleled Expedition Experience 

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. 

Become Part of the Force!

In joining the IAE/ClimateForce: Arctic 2019 expedition, you become part of a vast movement of change leaders from across the globe. With thousands of 2041/TEP 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.

Arctic

The Arctic is truly the perfect setting for this expedition. It is an unforgettable destination and those who venture to this frozen ocean return home with a fresh perspective on their place in the world. It’s massive ice sheets are home to polar bears, Svalbard reindeer, and puffins. It is one of the most beautiful, untouched, and pristine locations on the planet, which is exactly why we must do everything we can to preserve it. And, as the modern world evolves, so too does the dire need to protect one of Mother nature’s last untouched jewels. The key to this mission is it to promote the use of renewable energy across the globe. If we can do this effectively then it won’t make financial sense for the world to exploit it. Join us on IAE/ClimateForce: Arctic 2019 for the adventure and education of a lifetime!

  • Testimonials

    To learn more about what past ClimateForce/IAE participants have to say about their experiences, we encourage you to read our testimonials below.

    “There are few experiences in life that can really touch you at your core — that move you, humble you, and transform how you think of and perceive the world. From feeling microscopic next to majestic humpback whales, to the empowerment that comes from learning the true science and potential solutions for global warming, the IAE experience elicits feelings, questions, and emotions you seldom get to contemplate. It is truly an experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”

    Gaurav Kikani, United States

     

    “You know that moment when you see something so beautiful you wish you were a poet? Or that moment when nature stuns you, and you wish you were a scientist? Or that moment when a community creates such an impact on your life that you wish you stop time? There are very few moments in my life where these feelings all converged – a true sense of awe of the natural world, a deeper understanding of the science of our planet and plight of Antarctica, and the passion and hopefulness of a truly global group of young leaders who could actually change the world.”

    Fred Assaf, United States

      

    “This expedition to Antarctica is not just an expedition to the south, but an inspirational voyage of self-discovery and self-evaluation that focuses around the issue of climate change. At the end, one will no doubt question why we live the way we do today. As Colomina and Wigley (2016) say: “The human might be the only species to have systematically designed its own extinction, and seems to be getting close to accomplishing the goal”. We are very well aware of the consequences of our actions and it is our choice to take a moment to accept and initiate change or parade through our own self-destruction. This expedition to Antarctica equips one with a reason and a platform for action and hopefully mark the beginning of a chain-action to finally end this mindless game.”

    Tomohito Shibata, Japan

     

    “The International Antarctica Expedition 2017 profoundly impacted me on many levels. What a once-in-a-life-time opportunity it was to experience the exquisite beauty of Antarctica, the last remaining wilderness—a frozen version of paradise. I also loved getting to know my fellow passengers who came from 32 different countries, all wanting to learn more about climate change. I felt inspired listening to their plans, projects, and visions for lowering carbon output and mitigating climate change in their respective countries.  This journey was probably the most memorable trip I have ever been on.”

    Erica Elliott, United States

     

    “My experience with 2041 was truly life changing. The passion of the team leaders, the stories told by my fellow travelers, the brainstorming sessions and the motivation I was left with to go out and do my part in protecting the planet were unparalleled in terms of any other journeys I have undertaken in my life. On top of that, the spectacular setting of Antarctica itself as a backdrop to our discussions and seeing the realities of climate change up close and personal were powerful catalyzers of change. Thank you for such a special experience!”

    Alexa Firmenich, Switzerland

     

    “There are two learning elements to the experience: the people and the place. The people: You think you are there for Rob, but after spending those days on the ship, you realize everybody on the ship is a Rob in his or her own right, and the motivation, the learning is infinite. And then the place: Antarctica. Its dissolves the realms of space, time and distance, it’s a world beyond ours. You see it in pictures, but you feel it only when you are there. And the feeling just enhances every day, and I’ve been back for six weeks now. You realize that if you are lucky enough to have that place on our planet, you have a responsibility to protect it too.”  

    Rohit Gupta, India

     

    “International Antarctic Expedition 2017 was a life-changing experience. Antarctica was so surreal and moving that I will do everything I can to keep it exactly the way it currently is. This continent has taken a piece of my heart and has inspired me to keep pushing to bring about changes that will combat global warming and preserve Antarctica.

    Apart from the moving experiences of watching the impact of climate change real-time, the expedition really helped me broaden my perspective. The most valuable for me were the interactions I had with the incredible people from varied fields and countries who were a part of the expedition. Every single one of them is doing something amazing in his/ her own way. Their determination to make a difference motivated me to do something meaningful.”

    Digantika Mitra, India

  • Expedition Leaders

    What truly sets The Explorer’s Passage apart are our Expedition Leaders. The Expedition Leaders for the IAE/ClimateForce: Arctic 2019 expedition are the best in the business.

    ROBERT SWAN, OBE, FOUNDER OF 2041 FOUNDATION

    On November 3, 1984, Robert Swan traveled 14,842 nautical miles (27,487 km) to Antarctica. Inspired by the great Robert Falcon Scott, the British Navy Officer and Explorer who in 1912 led the 2nd team to ever reach the South Pole. Swan’s incredible crossing of Antarctica, some 900 miles (1,400 km), would be more ambitious and on January 11, 1986, after 70 days, Swan’s team had achieved the longest unassisted march ever made in history. Three years later, on May 14, 1989, Swan and a team of 7 explorers reached the North Pole making Swan the first man to walk to both the North and South Poles. He was awarded the Polar Medal by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and is a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Youth.

    The experiences at the Poles allowed Swan to witness the effects of climate change firsthand and he shifted his life’s purpose to working toward solutions to the greatest threat Swan is one history’s greatest survivalists. He has spent his life doing the impossible and inspiring the world. He has shown us countless times under the most dire of situations his strength, courage and fortitude. There is no better leader on this planet to lead this mission, to lead OUR mission. Join us and be part of history to join Swan’s fight and the fight for humanity to solve our greatest threat for survival that our planet faces. Through his organization ‘2041’, Robert Swan has traveled to all corners of the globe to inspire and build leaders to create a more sustainable world. Robert is on a 50 year mission to help preserve Antarctica and our planet. His story of unbelievable spirit will take you on a journey of inspiration, courage and humility.

     

    JEFF BONALDI, FOUNDER & CEO – THE EXPLORER’S PASSAGE

    Adventure Travel isn’t just about the journey that sends us soaring head-first into uncharted territory – it’s also about The Story: the history, mystery, myth and lore unique to that territory, its people and its culture.

    Jeff’s passion for storytelling came as a teenager, when, during visits to some of America’s oldest universities, he found myself enamored by the European-influenced architecture, and by legends like Albert Einstein, James Madison and Thomas Jefferson who walked the grounds decades before. Inspired to learn more, he dug deep into the history behind these universities, and soon began leading his own elaborate tours for friends and family, impressing and inspiring them with his enthusiasm and encyclopedic knowledge. It wasn’t long before his love for guiding and storytelling burgeoned from the microcosm of the college campus to cities throughout the U.S. and Europe and later, across the globe. Determined to “redefine the perfect way to travel,” he have spent years accumulating and curating the skills and experiences that now serve as the foundation for The Explorer’s Passage. At the heart of his philosophy, of course, is The Story – the historical element uncovered through extensive research and woven seamlessly throughout each of TEP’s adventures. The Story, he believes, is what launches travel into the realm of transcendent, leaving travelers invigorated, enriched and enlightened.

    Jeff has have climbed, canoed and galloped through nearly 30 countries on six continents. He has come a long way since his college campus touring days – and yet, his mission remains singular: to create, the most immersive, transformative and spine-tingling travel experiences in the industry.

     

    BARNEY SWAN, LOGISTICS & TEAM MANAGER, 2041 FOUNDATION

    Barney Swan was born in London, United Kingdom, and then moved to tropical Far North
    Queensland, Australia at the age of 7. Being raised off grid in Australia helped him developed an acute understanding of how valuable energy is, with conveniences often not being an option.

    On January 15, 2018, after skiing 600 nautical miles, Barney Swan along with two other explorers became the first people in history to journey to the South Pole powered entirely by renewable energy. His incredible feat marked the launch of the ClimateForce Challenge, a 7-year campaign which he has committed to remove 326 million tons of C02 out of the atmosphere. Using this journey as a platform for engagement, he will be working with sponsors, and partners to empower audiences with solutions, dialogues, and measurable actions plans surrounding sustainable development.

    With degrees in Business and Multimedia, Barney helps run the 2041 Foundation and co-directs 2041’s expeditions and ventures across the globe. Over the last 5 years, he has developed and applied his skills in alpine mountaineering, risk management, technical sailing, and outdoor leadership.
