What's On at Torquay Museum

Antony Jinman, Polar Explorer Talk

Date: 14 October 2017

Saturday 14th October, 2pm

As part of Torquay Museum's Explorer Season, come and listen to Devon based Polar Explorer, Antony Jinman talking about his expeditions to the Geographic North and South Poles.

Antony Jinman is a modern day polar explorer and educational entrepreneur who is pioneering how technology can be used to share experiences and credible information through “Live Learning”. In 2014 Jinman skied 730 miles solo to the Geographic South Pole in just 46 days, whilst interacting with over 8000 pupils in schools around the world, allowing them to share in the experience and debate issues online with “Live learning” scientists and educators. Upon reaching the pole he made history by becoming the 12th Briton ever to have reached both the Geographic North and South Poles, his very own Olympic polar gold. With 16 expeditions into both the Arctic and Antarctica Antony brings a wealth of experience and knowledge.

You may believe that there is nothing left to explore, that the world has been mapped and that the age of exploration and explorers on our planet is at an end. But you’d be mistaken; there is a need today as much as there has ever been, if only to inspire the hearts and minds of future generations about the world around them.
