Ignacio Oficialdegui, Sunniva Sorby, and Wilson Wai Yin Cheung | Explorer’s Club 50 Visionaries
The first episode of The 2022 Explorers 50 Speaker Series, supported by Rolex, kicks-off on Wednesday, October 12th at 7pm with “Visionaries”. This episode brings together experts from around the world and from various disciplines who have explored some of our world’s harshest climates, from icey tundras to frozen seas and field sites without sun.
The panel discussion will be moderated by EC 50 Chair Joe Rohde and contemplate the very reason why explorers go to the extremes that they so often do. Tune in to learn about the ways these explorers are inspiring the world to care about far-off places.
For the founder of Rolex, Hans Wilsdorf, the world was like a living laboratory. He began to use it as a testing ground for his watches from the 1930s, sending them to the most extreme locations, supporting explorers who ventured into the unknown. But the world has changed.
As the 21st century unfolds, exploration for pure discovery has given way to exploration as a means to preserve the natural world. Rolex continues the legacy of its founder, supporting the explorers of today on their new mission: to make the planet perpetual.
