Darren McGann and Janet Morris, 2041 IAE 2011 Members

In June, two 2041 IAE Alumni Members Darren McGann and Janet Morris reunited at the Corporate Eco Forum Gala in Washington D.C. “The annual meeting assembles an elite group of senior executives from 18 industries to share insights, collaborate, and innovate” as explained by EcoForum. Janet had won her place to attend the 2041 IAE 2011 Expedition after promising not to buy any new products for a year. She took the stage to tell her inspiring journey after an incredible introduction done by Corporate Eco Forum Founder’s twelve year old daughter, Anjali Rangaswami.

Watch Janet as she takes more than 220 Corporate and Government Environmental Leaders on a virtual trip to Antarctica here.

This past May, Robert Swan made his journey to Singapore where he spoke at The Vitol Industry Speaker Series to raise awareness of the 2041 movement. Over 400 people attended the talk held in Singapore, with backgrounds ranging from government officials, business leaders and students.
