Expeditions are probably the best learning environment for young people. Being pushed physically and mentally means students are taken out of their comfort zone, and that’s where the magic happens.
We don’t see our expeditions as a ‘once in a lifetime adventure’. We’re aiming for something much more long term. Our goal is to ignite a life-long passion for adventure, a yearning for global learning and for students to be able to make educated decisions about risk-benefit and long term global sustainability. After all, we’re educating the next generation of travellers, teachers, nurses, engineers, politicians and potentially world leaders. It’s important we open their eyes to the world – the good and the bad.
Feedback from both students and parents tells us again and again that our expeditions transform young people’s perspectives on world politics, religion, history and the importance of the global community.
