Extreme Explorer Taking Inspiring One Million Kids Onto Everest in 2017

Speaker's Fee:

D £3 - £5,000

  • British Polar Explorer taking on the world’s most extreme challenges.
  • Using virtual reality and live footage Wood will take one million students with him onto Mount Everest in 2017.
  • Aiming to show the world how modern day explorers operate, the effects of global warming and to ultimately inspire people to think about their own lives.

Mark Wood operates in some of the most remote, extreme cold areas of our planet – from long range polar expeditions to covering 8000 metre peaks.

Mark Wood was born in the centre of the UK where the car industry would have been the natural avenue for him to take.

Mark Wood’s ability to look at life differently and seize opportunities has led him in a career through the military and rescue to now being one of the most dedicated polar explorers of our time.

In 2013, Mark Wood attempted a 72 day expedition to ascend Mount Everest. The remarkable part of this journey was that he connected to over 10,000 school children worldwide using mobile technology from the extremes of the mountain and in real time. Making Everest one of the most incredible and inspiring classrooms in the world.

In 2017, Mark Wood will attempt to summit Everest again to an extraordinary new level. Mission 8848 will connect with over one Million students. Using the latest cutting–edge cameras, 3d projections, 360 immersive and virtual reality technologies the climbers will connect through live-stream broadcast into over 8848 classrooms around the globe.

The reason is to demonstrate how modern day explorers operate, to encourage students to understand the effects of global warming and to inspire them to think differently about their own lives.   “This is more than just a walk on a mountain.” – Mark Wood
