Many similarities exist between developing and managing an offshore racing team and developing and launching an exploratory expedition. You need to build teams, build equipment, raise money, manage logistics, and engage the public. Recognizing these similarities, the french sailor Roland Jourdain and his team founded EXPLORE in 2014. The French-based incubator focuses on supporting exploration with three main components to its mission, scientific understanding, innovation, and awareness-raising.
To expand its education program, EXPLORE will develop 12 new educational kits with its incubator winners based on the technological and scientific discoveries of ocean-related explorations. The hands-on lesson plans are designed to teach students about marine biodiversity, plastic pollution, energy reduction, and the preservation of water resources.
EXPLORE is a French-based incubator launched in 2014 by sailor Roland Jourdain. The organization’s mission is to transform environmental issues into new fields of exploration for the benefit of humanity and the planet by understanding, innovating, and raising awareness. The incubator supports ocean exploration and provides selected winners with EXPLORE’s technical and project management skills, to give wings to these brilliant ideas.
