Expedition 8848

Our aim is to use Mount Everest to create the biggest and most extreme classroom on the planet. This will inspire students to think differently about life; the next generation have a unique opportunity to clearly understand their own responsibility towards the planet. This is the first time in exploration history where explorers can use the latest technologies to film and communicate with students globally to encourage in ‘real time’ to take them on an virtual expedition to help them to think differently about our home.

Through EDUCATION they will create unique and inspiring online lesson plans along with a 3D route map allowing students to follow their journey.

Visual Skype COMMUNICATION will link the explorers in real time from the mountain directly into the classrooms worldwide. Daily interactive social media updates will allow students to converse and exchange ideas with not only the explorers but with other students around the globe.

An ENVIRONMENTAL Global Experiment will collect clean air data from around the world on one map of the earth indicating problem areas – the aim is to then influence political views on climate change.

Finally, a Four Million Voices DOCUMENTARY that the students will make will be shown on route through the valleys, monasteries, schools and villages that line the route to Everest – creating the highest cinema on earth as part of a major 8848 documentary.

Teachers, schools, scout groups and anyone interested in the worlds most extreme educational experiment, can be a part of the expedition.
