Welcome to

The Explorer Society Foundation​

About us​

The age of classic geographical exploration is over. The time has come for a new evolution, and rediscovering a liveable future has become our top priority.​

“The Explorer Society” Science, Culture and Environment Foundation was founded in 2011 by four renowned Hungarian science professionals. Their primary goal was to contribute with their professional advice and experience gained from their research and expedition activities to The Explorer magazine, which is published in several countries of Central and Eastern Europe. The founders have always believed that not only theory but also practice is an important part of true knowledge dissemination, and therefore, in addition to supporting the magazine’s publishing activities, they have organised small and large expeditions and have been keenly interested in environmental and climate issues from the very beginning, in addition to classic geographic exploration. In the course of the Foundation’s activities, the four founders eventually travelled to all countries of the world and, alarmed by the growing scars that climate change and outdated human behaviour were inflicting on the planet and the biosphere, decided to extend the Foundation’s mission and activities beyond the promotion of geographical knowledge to include specific nature and climate protection projects. At the same time, the Foundation also set itself the task of exploring planet-friendly and climate-neutral lifestyles.
