MSC Foundation Partners with Horn Foundation to Support the Pangaea X

The MSC Foundation announced a partnership with the Horn Foundation in order to support its Pangaea X Program for helping young people develop projects that contribute to achieving certain key UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Most notable among these goals are Affordable and Clean Energy, Responsible Consumption and Production, Life Below Water and Life On Land, according to a press release. The announcement was made by Mike Horn, the newly-named brand ambassador for Explora Journeys.

“Over 10 years ago, I launched my first educational program for the conservation of our planet. Today, young people are much more concerned than they used to be, and I want to offer them the resources to take effective action. Pangaea X has proven a catalyst for change, and I am eager to see the innovative solutions and ideas that the next generation will bring to the table.

So we are delighted to partner with the Horn Foundation to nurture sustainability leaders capable of inspiring and advocating for the transformations needed to secure a strong and resilient future. Mike Horn has for years been such a leader and Pangaea X will offer the right platform for our next generations to build solid practical solutions.”

Participants can learn through an online platform, face-to-face workshops, mentorships and networking events.
