Calling all 2041 Alumni, and welcome to home base

I am so pleased that you are now part of the 2041 “family.” You are only here because you took the first step and completed the Antarctic Expedition with myself and the 2041 Team. Well Done. There is much to do to accomplish the changes we discussed, but together….We can… let’s get started, Robert Swan. In order to be a 2041 Alumni you must have travelled on one of 2041 Expeditions. We now have a LinkedIn site for all 2041 Alumni. You will have received an invitation by email. If not please contact Sarah on the following email and she will provide you with the information sarah@2041foundation.org.
