Explorers are dreamers, and in dreaming build new pathways toward what is possible. From the vastness of the deep, hiking the jungles of the Amazon, rocketing to the stars and beyond – we are charting the course for the future of the planet. Boundless possibilities await us all, kick-off the fifth Global Exploration Summit and dream big with us.

GLEX SUMMIT | 2 SESSION | FROM THE FRONT LINE.

Field science and the pursuit of cultural exchange cannot cease in conflict, in fact in crisis the spirit of human endeavor is needed more than ever. Through some of the most complicated political situations in the world, hear tales from incredible individuals overcoming the odds.

Infinite Horizons.

A horizon line denotes where the known meets the unknown.

The panorama of all possibilities lies before us, and it is up to those with the fire inside to seek beyond. From classical pursuits to groundbreaking new ways of understanding ourselves, start our second day with inspiring stories and reflections on courage in the face of the unknown.

GLEX SUMMIT | 4 SESSION

Beyond the Veil.

Pull back the curtain and learn what's inside – pierce the black darkness of cave systems, watch insect predators hunt in the deep night, uncover cultural traditions buried beneath the sands of time, defy the loss of sight to hear the vibrance of life, and unfold the very origins of humanity ourselves.
