Join The Explorers Club as we explore the ethical obligations that must be considered in the planning, execution, and crisis management of any expedition. We will start with the 1884 case of Regina v Dudley and Stevens, involving three sailors stranded without food or water in a lifeboat, and end with Jost Kobusch the solo climber who is currently on Everest.

Along the way, this lecture  will consider the implicit social contract that underlies all expeditions, assessment of decisional capacity while in the field, and the implications of the ethical concept of the “duty to rescue.” Special attention will be paid to the ethical dimension of underwater exploration and the conversation every diver should have with their buddy about entrapment and nitrogen narcosis.

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live — Monday, March 7th at 7:00 pm ET.
