Leadership on the edge: Saving our wilderness

Earth Trust invites you to a lecture by Robert Swan, OBE.

Robert Swan is the first man to have walked unsupported to both poles and is currently attempting to walk with his son to the South Pole without any energy other than solar. He has dedicated his life to the conservation of the world’s greatest remaining wilderness and to inspiring young people to become the next generation of environmental leaders. As well as a fascinating talk by Robert on his expeditions, his dedication to preserving Antarctica and inspiring our future leaders, the evening will also include the opportunity for a private tour of the renowned Pitt Rivers Museum, a drinks reception amongst the exhibits in the historic hall of the Natural History Museum and silent auction.

  • 6.30pm: drinks reception amongst the museum exhibits and the silent auction opens
