The Mission of the 2041 programme

In two years, at the third ‘World Summit for Sustainable Development’ in 2012, the existing Kyoto Protocol for the Environment will expire. Around the world the threat of climate change has become apparent to us all.

It is our mission to build on this by informing, engaging and inspiring the next generation of leaders to take responsibility, be sustainable, and know that now is the time for action in policy development, sustainable business generation and future technologies.

 

"As the last unspoilt wilderness on earth, Antarctica is currently protected by a treaty prohibiting drilling and mining until 2041. Decisions made by today's youth will impact our entire planet's ecosystem and the future of life on earth" ROBERT SWAN OBE
