Presentation by Liv Arnesen

Legendary polar explorer and expedition leader

Arnesen’s rich life experiences, both on and off the ice, have made her an internationally recognized leader and role model for women and girls. A self-proclaimed “keen” but not fanatical outdoors enthusiast, Arnesen is most interested in the development of adults and children. Through her diverse roles as a polar explorer, educator and motivational leader, Arnesen ignites passion in others to reach beyond their normal boundaries and achieve their dreams by sharing her own stories about exploring some of the most remote places on earth.

She is famous for several "firsts" for women in exploration. In 1994, Arnesen makes international headlines by becoming the first woman in the world to ski solo and unsupported to the South Pole—a 50-day expedition of 745 miles (1,200 km). In February 2001, Arnesen and American polar explorer Ann Bancroft become the first women in history to sail and ski across Antarctica’s landmass—completing a 94-day, 1,717-mile (2,747 km) trek.

In 2015, Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft will lead a team of six women, from six continents, on an 2525 km (1,569 mile), 60-day long expedition following the River Ganges from Gaumukh to the Bay of Bengal.Each of the women will be representing the key water challenges on their continent. Their journey will be the centerpiece of a global awareness and outreach program that will spur us all to join hands in solving our global water crisis.
