Robert Swan’s dream of following in the footsteps of the great Captain Falcon Scott began at the age of eleven. That dream became a reality when in 1979 he began to raise the necessary funds to reach the $5 million he needed for the expedition. It took over 2,000 sponsors to enable Swan to reach his dream.

Since then 2041 has worked alongside some of the most reputable companies around the world. Our corporate partnerships have been further strengthened through ‘Inspire Antarctic Expedition’ (IAE) which began in 2003. Each year Robert leads a group of up and coming corporate leaders, entrepreneurs in the field of renewable energy, young people and teachers on a 2-week long journey to Antarctica to learn leadership skills and lessons on sustainability.

There are numerous ways you can become a supporter of 2041, be it on an individual level or as part of a wider corporate community. For instance:
