“Everything is possible.
The impossible just takes more time”
Johan Ernst Nilson is from Sweden and has been traveling around the world for most of his life. He is one of today’s most celebrated travelers and adventures. But he sees himself rather as an “environmental explorer.” Johan has constantly been attracting public attention to climate change and its consequences. He gives talks and lectures on environmental awareness and the state of the world as well as on motivation, inspiration and peak performance.
Johan has been a global adventurer for more than 20 years and travelled 170 countries. He is a Guinness world record holder. He has embarked on a journey from the North Pole to the South Pole, has already climbed the Seven Summits, has ﬂown a boat across Europe, cycled from Sweden to the Sahara Desert, and a lot more.
Johan is a coach and mentor for companies and CEOs, children in schools around the world, travelers and sportsmen. He personally trained Aron Anderson, wheelchair racer and the very ﬁrst person to climb the mountain summit in disabled chair.
Johan is a big activist for the environment, an advocate against climate change and poverty, a staunch supporter of education in developing countries and of the protection of endangered species. Last year alone, in conjunction with his adventures, he has raised six million dollars. 50% of his time and efforts are dedicated to charity.
Johan Ernst dedicates much time to philanthropy and charity addressing such issues as poverty, disability, drug-use and violence. He is an Ambassador for the International Union for Conservation of Nature, a Global Non-Violence Ambassador, an Honorary Goodwill Ambassador of Nepal, an Ambassador of “Mentor Sweden” and holds many other honorable titles.
Mr. Nilson received a Medal of Honour from the Swedish Church in 1996.
