After a year of promoting the outstanding inaugural Explorers 50 Class, we are thrilled to present the final exciting installment of The Explorers 50 Speaker Series, supported by Rolex.

Meet the “Storytellers” on Wednesday, December 22nd at 7pm ET. This episode brings together experts from multiple disciplines who have forged new frontiers and shared their work in compelling and impactful ways. As always, the panel discussion will be moderated by EC 50 Chair Joe Rohde. It will dive into topics expanding the idea of exploration, innovation, and creating new methods of revelation and communication.

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook Live  Wednesday, December 22nd at 7:00 pm ET.

Speakers

Susan R. Eaton

When a catastrophic incident ended Susan’s lifelong passion for scuba diving, she started exploring the snorkel zone and fell in love with the ocean all over again. A geoscientist, journalist, and polar explorer, Susan explores the world’s changing oceans – from Antarctica to the Arctic – in the snorkel zone, a unique land-sea-ice-air interface where charismatic animals and snorkelers commingle.

Latonia Hartery, P.H.D.

Latonia Hartery  is a circumpolar archaeologist. She directs the Bird Cove Archaeology Project in Northern Newfoundland, which is noted for its research on five thousand years of Indigenous history. She is the President of the AARA, a charity dedicated to northern studies and student scholarships. Latonia is also an award-winning filmmaker.

John Houston

John Houston grew up among Inuit while his parents presented Inuit art to the world. He uses storytelling, filmmaking and art to bridge the cultural gap. John’s fluency in Inuktitut encourages Elders to share their truth. John models “Two-eyed Seeing” – the pairing of Indigenous and Western perspectives to reveal the whole picture.

Shelton Johnson

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Shelton attended Cass Tech High School and graduated from the University of Michigan. After serving in the Peace Corps in Kakata, Liberia and West Africa he spent a summer working in Yellowstone National Park which has now lasted for over 30 years. He’s been a Park Ranger with the National Park Service serving in Yellowstone, Washington, D.C., Great Basin, and Yosemite National Park.

Avijan Saha

Avijan Saha is from Siliguri, West Bengal, India. He’s a photographic journalist whose work highlights the environmental matters defining our time. His focus and photographs on elephants have been widely published. Avijan’s goal is to not only build a bridge between the human and natural world, but to also communicate those efforts.
