People have reflected on the question of “who are we?” for centuries, and that question became the jumping off point for this project: Who are we as an institution? And more importantly, who do we want to be? We have over 100 years of exploration legacy behind us, empowered by the most extraordinary accomplishments of human history. With that in mind, the question became, what does the future of The Explorers Club and the next 100 years of exploration look like?
To answer that question we have launched The Explorers Club 50: Fifty People Changing the World that the World Needs to Know About. Every honoree featured in this publication, as well as hundreds of other nominees, are exploring, inspiring, and creating the future -- the future of the planet, the future of food security, of paleontology, of biology, what our communities should look like, and so much more. The EC50 was established to not only reflect the great diversity of exploration, but to give a voice to these trailblazing explorers, scientists, and activists doing incredible work.
For the first time, The Explorers Club 50 hardcopy publication is available to order online. Featuring a beautifully embossed cover and stunning full page photography, this 124-page book presents all fifty of the honorees, reflecting the great diversity of exploration and giving a voice to these trailblazing explorers, scientists, and activists who do incredible work.
