Expeditions of the Future: Scientific expeditions of yesterday, today, and imagining those to come.
As our environment and society change, so too do the many ways in which we explore our planet. People previously excluded from participating in expeditions now lead them, building new models of knowledge curation. Join Ingrid Algren and National Geographic Explorers Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey, Allison Fundis, and Jennifer Berglund in a conversation about women in expedition leadership, the ways in which expeditions are changing today, and explore how you can be part of shaping those of the future!
