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.

Awaiting the IAE 2017 Expedition Team


Arriving to a big, bustling city such as Buenos Aires after an international flight can be a bit of an overwhelming experience. With the loud city noises, densely packed streets, and humidity of the summer, it caught us all by surprise...

Buenos Aires, the "Paris of Latin America" is a densely packed place broken up by gorgeous green parks & old growth Gum trees. After settling in, the 2041 team has been enjoying the atmosphere and eateries in between diligently preparing for the arrival of the IAE 2017 participants. 


In just two days, we will all be boarding first a plane to the "Southern Most City of the World", Ushuaia, then just hours after jumping on a boat traveling South out of the Beagle Channel, past the Drake passage, to the last great wilderness, Antarctica.

Education, networking and of course adventure, all await on our expedition. We're anxiously awaiting the teams arrival and the start of our trip. See you tomorrow!

    Have a memorable and awesome time in the best class room in the world, with the best teachers in the world.
    Just remember to wake wake wake every day to get the most of what Antarctica has to throw at you... You WILL not come back the same person you left Ushuai as.
