Do you have an adventurous spirit? Are you thrilled by new discoveries? The next Conference 934 is for you!

On January 11th, 2018 at 6:30 pm, the Consulate will host a conference on the Explorers of the 21st Century. The conference will focus on what it means to be an explorer nowadays. To that aim, three explorers will share their experience and impressions about the most interesting fields of research and the recently explored or unexplored parts of the world.

Luc Hardy, member of the Explorers Club and head of the NGO Pax Arctica Initiative, conducts scientific expeditions and has traveled to the remotest corners of the world to raise public awareness about environmental causes. Cave DiverNatalie L. Gibb, also a member of the Explorers Club, has been an active cave explorer since 2009, and has explored over twenty cave systems in Mexico. Vanessa O’Brien, member of the Explorers Club and of the Scientific Exploration Society, is the first American and British woman to summit K2, the second tallest mountain in the world, in 2017.

Each of them will be pleased to show you videos and pictures of their explorations and discoveries. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the conference: do not hesitate to ask them questions!

The conference is free and open to the public.
