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.

    I am grateful to you for posting this blog. It is interesting to see where my child and her fellow travelers are going and what they will be doing. Thank you for enabling arm chair travelers to participate vicariously.
