Evening speaker: Carina Ahlqvist – Mountaineer, Climate Research Explorer and Senior Project Manager, AdventurebyCarina

 

“The purpose is higher than the summit”

 

Carina will share what it is like to climb 8000 metre mountains to the roof of the world where no life can survive, yet it fills her with a sensation of being 200% alive. As an explorer in The Explorers Club (TEC), she will share how she overcomes challenges and how this ties into her work as an entrepreneur in climate research in collaboration with ESA and NASA. Carina brings you to the edge of adventure becoming snow blind at 7600 metres, falling into a crevasse but with a problem solving approach learning lessons from the experience that are valuable and ties into her next upcoming missions.
