Going to extremes to save the planet
In 2015 a leadership expert from Melbourne and a marine scientist from Tasmania launched a bold idea – to gather 80 or so female scientists from across the globe and send them to the most isolated and least visited place on Earth… Antarctica.
This dream, dubbed ‘Homeward Bound’, became a reality in 2017 with the first expedition safely completed and the next cohort enrolled. We have assembled a group of Homeward Bounders to showcase the stories, science and achievements behind this important and inspirational plan to influence big decisions made globally for the future of our planet.
Recommended for secondary school aged and older.
Latecomers will be admitted at a suitable time during the performance.
