BENEFITING: 2041 FOUNDATION INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: Aug 01, 2017
I have been selected as an official participant for the Climate Force: Antarctica 2018 Expedition, which will be held from 27 Feb - 12 March 2018. I will join a diverse group of people from around the world who have also been selected to participate in Climate Force’s “Leadership on the Edge” program led by Robert Swan OBE, as well as learning exercises led by renowned experts on issues of climate change, sustainability, and energy use. I will also be empowered with tools to implement these ideas and help protect Antarctica, the last great wilderness on Earth. It is NOW time for action in policy development and sustainable business generation through the promotion of recycling, renewable energy, and sustainability. We believe that if we get this right, we can preserve the Antarctic together. I will explore the Antarctic Peninsula and gain firsthand knowledge of the continent’s fragile ecosystem, experience the unique Antarctic wildlife and observe its magnificent landscape. My days will be filled with life lessons on leadership and team building, which will help create lifelong relationships with other global change agents. Throughout the program I will learn valuable skills designed to bolster my ability to build and guide successful teams at work, home, and in the community.
