Departing from Antarctica often leaves people feeling a blend of sadness and awe. After experiencing such a raw environment, it can be a hard prospect to adjust back to our ‘real’ lives and responsibilities. Eventually as time passes, and our focus shifts elsewhere, those intense feelings subside, and it can be easy to forget why we ventured South. Raising the funds, traveling half way around the world, and braving the Drake Passage…only to find oneself immersed in a strange and exotic land. If you didn’t know why you journeyed south whilst you were there, you most certainly do by the time you leave. Quite simply, it is unlike any other place on Earth, a pristine frontier still bound by nature whims, a place where few have had the fortune to pass through.
Within “The Leadership On The Edge Program” we have aligned people from different industries and backgrounds to work towards a more sustainable, clean energy future. Lets use this shared passion, and the experience of Antarctica, to become ambassadors for change and progression. We visited the Antarctic for a reason, let’s act upon it.
