The Endurance22 expedition, an initiative of the Falklands Maritime Heritage Trust, enabled tens of thousands of students around the globe to participate in the historic discovery of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s lost ship, Endurance . A global team of explorers set out to locate, survey and film the shipwreck in the Weddell Sea, Antarctica, in February 2022. They engaged students every step of the way through Reach the World’s virtual exchange program. The expedition’s commitment to storytelling and education made it possible for a new generation of students, including those in communities that may experience isolation or exclusion, to connect with Ernest Shackleton’s legacy of leadership, draw inspiration from world-class explorers and experience the Antarctic environment.
