TEDxPearlRiver - Mike Horn - Pangea: Exploring the Limits

Mike Horn is acknowledged globally as one of the greatest modern day explorers. He's crossed and swum the rivers, sailed the oceans solo, survived near-death environments, brutally extreme conditions and confronted nature at her most unforgiving. In two decades, he's probably seen more of the earth than any other human. He realized that the future of our planet lay solely in the hands of our youth, who if properly educated and informed, can save and sustain our world for generations to come. He created his dream expedition "Pangaea" a four year project that serves as a powerful platform from which young adults can experience and explore the natural world, learn about its challenges, find possible solutions, and above all, act swiftly to help change things for the better. Mike launched the 8th Pangaea expedition to Russia in November 2010.
