Lisbon to host global Exploration Summit in July

Portugal is to host the Global Exploration Summit, which will take place between 3 and 5 July in Lisbon.

It is the summit of the oldest exploration society in the world, the Explorers Club of New York, and for the first time it will take place outside the United States with the participation of over 400 pioneering researchers and professionals in the field of science, art and technology.

The event, which will be organised with the support of Turismo de Portugal and in collaboration with the committee for the celebration of the circumnavigation's 500th anniversary, should have panels open to the public with worldwide references to exploration and science.

This summit will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the man to the Moon.

Among the confirmed speakers are the World Ocean Forum’s director Alexander More, the doctor Bertrand Piccard, the archaeologist Beverly Goodman, the film director Fabien Cousteau and NASA’s chief-scientist James Garvin.

All of them will take part in the signing of the Lisbon Resolution.

A second Portuguese edition of the event is already planned for 2021.
