THE SES EXPLORER AWARDS 2015
The SES has embarked on its next great expedition, a global search for the world's Pioneers With Purpose; leaders and visionaries who are setting out to change the earth through extraordinary feats of ingenuity and scientific exploration. With the support of some of the great names of exploration, the SES intends to support the rising stars in the world of exploration, who will gain knowledge of value and purpose by leading the expeditions of the future.
To mark this initiative, John Blashford-Snell was joined by some of the leading explorers of today including Neil Laughton, Andrew Mitchell, Pen Hadow and Rosie Stancer at the Park Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge on Wednesday 30th April for the presentation of the SES Explorer Awards 2014. Outstanding applications were received from around the world, and winners’ projects include expeditions to the Arctic, Peruvian Amazon, coral reefs of Belize, Northern India, the Ethiopian Highlands and Nepal.
We are delighted to announce new sponsors of the SES EXPLORER AWARDS 2015, joining those continuing their support from 2014 and thus offering an increased and wider array of financial opportunities to those leading pioneering expeditions. We are grateful to Zenith, the Rivers Foundation, Cadogan Tate and the Rowan Bentall Charitable Foundation for their continued support and delighted to welcome Neville Shulman and Sir Charles Blois as new sponsors for the 2015 SES Explorer Awards.
