Bangkok Patana School
Bangkok Patana School is Thailand’s original British international school and is one of the most respected educational establishments in South East Asia.
2041 was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, OBE, the first person in history to walk to both the North and South Poles.
The Mission of Robert Swan's 2041 organisation is: to inspire, stimulate and connect organizations and communities who seek to protect our world and create a more sustainable, clean energy future. Bangkok Patana School's Vision Statement is: We develop global citizens who shape their world through independence, empathy, creativity and critical thinking. One of the key values underpinning our vision statement is that we are 'inspired to improve global sustainability'. As such, our school's community has been fully inspired by the messages Robert Swan shared with us during his keynote presentations at our school in October 2016, and this website is one way of sharing how we will engage with and commit to the same goals which Robert promotes: greater recycling, increased use of renewable energy, and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change.

Do not tell people what to do, inspire them to change. The night’s crossing had been turbulent but the seasickness pills and patches had done their job and we slept through most of the night OK.

We had a bit of a lay in this morning as we were going to be waking up to the middle of the Drake Passage so there was to be nothing in particular to see other than sea!

We are now well into Drake’s Passage – it continues to go smoothly enough for us as the Captain is heading in a North Westerly direction taking us a little out of our way but missing the large storm that is directly ahead of us.

I cannot believe it is a week since we landed in Buenos Aires, the time has flown by. This morning we were greeted by more impressive views as we entered the Lemaire Channel.

Once more I set my alarm for 6am so I could be up on the bridge for the 6.34am sunrise. But alas there was no sunrise this morning and the scenery looked like it had forgotten to put its colour on! Everything was grey or white! However, as the water was so calm it made Read more about Mikkelsen Harbour and Cierva Cove, Antarctica[…]

Trying to imagine what it feels like to be Helen and Rebecca is hard. How does it feel sailing into the unknown? What are your thoughts when you look out from the boat and see nothing but ocean?
