Presentation Summary:

Come join National Geographic Explorers, Dad and Daughter Mike and Lilliana Libecki as they takes us on a journey to some of the most remote climbing expeditions possible from Antarctica to Afganistan, and from Greenland to the Deepest Jungles on the planet. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go on assignment on the most challenging expeditions in the world and bring home stories for National Geographic? He and his team from National Geographic will attempt to climb and explore in the most difficult environments on the planet: Antarctica. All while living in temperatures colder than your freezer at home (-67 degrees!) and enduring 100 mph winds, all in a place where rescue is impossible. Then head to unexplored Greenland for paddle boarding with polar bears, barely surviving sea ice, and climbing one of the biggest towers in the world…On to the deepest jungles to battle rain and immaculate mayhem to climb one of the biggest jungle towers on the planet. Finally, they will share their give back humanitarian expeditions to India, Peru and others making sure we are all asking what we can do to make the world a better place.  Come explore virgin Earth and experience the immaculate mayhem, magic, power and beauty of our Mother Earth and the parallel commonalities learned that relate to everyday life, business, relationships, and the deep mindfulness of the gift of this reality.
