One of the world’s leading sustainable explorers, David Mayer de Rothschild, has transformed global perceptions of environmental impact through his daring exploits and business ventures. Named as an Emerging Explorer by National Geographic, a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum and as a Climate Hero by the United Nations, David’s influence as been extensive.

Whether he’s leading expeditions around Ecuador with his ARTiculate series or spending 100 days crossing the Arctic from Russian to Canada, David has ecology at the forefront of his ambitions. Working to achieve a greater understanding of the natural world, and the steps people can take to protect it has led David to complete several high-profile adventures. Perhaps best known for developing the Plastiki, David created a catamaran boat made entirely of recycled materials, including 12,500 plastic bottles. Making a voyage from San Francisco to Sydney, David developed new sustainable technologies and spent 100 days on the water all in the name of raising awareness for ocean pollution.
Transforming his activism into leading business ideas, David has since Founded Adventure Ecology, a community-based organisation that promotes conversation surrounding climate action. He has also Founded the Mayoo Agency, a marketing agency that supports corporate clients in developing sustainable business practices, something David expands on as a speaker. To extend his platform for spreading awareness, David has also established Sculpt the Future, a high-profile educational organisation that highlights essential environmental issues.
