Barney Swan

Barney Swan was born in London, United Kingdom, and then moved to tropical Far North Queensland, Australia at the age of 7. Being raised off grid in Australia helped him developed an acute understanding of how valuable energy is, with conveniences often not being an option. With degrees in Business and Multimedia, Barney now lives and works in California, co-directing 2041’s expeditions and ventures. Over the last 5 years, he has applied and trained skills in outdoor leadership, team management, & project strategy.

Coming Up…

He is currently preparing to ski 60 days to the South Pole on renewable technologies. This journey represents the beginning of a 7 year campaign called The ClimateForce Challenge. The goal of this venture is to clean up 320 million tonnes of C02. Barney is passionate to be working with sponsors, and partners to guide people towards relevant solutions surrounding energy & C02. He is committed to create a tangible legacy through action, not words.



Both Robert and Barney will be available for speaking and lecture events once back from the South Pole. If you would like to know more, contact us below.
