The Explorers Club 50 – Looking for Nominations

Each of us knows an explorer who is making a meaningful difference in the world, someone who has inspired and challenged you. We are looking for people who are changing the way we look at the world, whether it be through spoken word, saving a language, field work, or in a lab, whether they work with the tiniest organisms or are helping to solve the world’s biggest problems.

We want you to nominate this individual for our newest initiative – THE EXPLORERS CLUB 50.

Criteria are purposely broad. Think outside of the box, beyond celebrity and lauded accomplishment.  Your nomination should tell us who or what defines exploration in the 21st-century – the best, the brightest, and most influential.

We’re not looking for household names, we’re looking for nominations that deserve recognition and a spotlight for their efforts and contributions – 50 people who are changing the world, that the world needs to know about.

Winners (along with their nominators), will be announced in the Fall of 2020, in publications, digital media and television.

Nominations must be made by Explorers Club Members, but winners will be open to members and non-members alike. You can nominate more than one individual.

Please tell us in 350 words or less, including relevant documents, poetry, art work, expedition links, or anything else that best exemplifies why your nomination is extraordinary. Applications are due September 15th, 2020.
