In March 2009, BP sponsored a student expedition to Antarctica led by the polar explorer Robert Swan, founder of the organization 2041.
The expedition aimed to inspire a young generation of talented students on issues related to climate and energy. A total of 60 students from 20 countries and 30 universities took part in the expedition.
CMI's Tom Kreutz and Pascale Maloof Poussart joined the expedition as part of a team of experts and facilitators to lead discussions on the challenges posed by climate change.
