Expedition Blog

2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE, the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles. Swan has dedicated his life to the preservation of Antarctica by the promotion of recycling, renewable energy and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change.

We are Getting Ready for IAE 2016!


Greetings Explorers!

Our HQ Team has finally slept off the holiday “food coma” and we are going full speed ahead in “Expedition mode,” as we prepare for our 2016 International Antarctic Expedition. We couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming journey with all of you. Our program this year will be bigger and better than ever, and will include an additional day in Antarctica. Our team is looking forward to exploring and being in the last great wilderness with you.

Our program of world-class speakers is taking shape and we can’t wait to announce our lecture series for this year, and our efforts to create “champions” continues again this year with an incredible group of participants from around the world. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you in Ushuaia in less than 60 days from now...Welcome Aboard!

Robert Swan, OBE
