This year's edition of the Glex Summit will take place in Angra do Heroísmo, on the island of Terceira, Azores, between the 14th and 16th of June.

An initiative of The Explorers Club and Expanding, the Global Exploration Summit will bring together explorers and scientists in Angra do Heroísmo, a city classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1983.

The event was created in the context of the celebrations of the 500th anniversary of the circumnavigation of Fernão de Magalhães, having become a meeting point for explorers, scientists and researchers from various areas of knowledge, to share the latest scientific innovations and technologies.

Last year, the Glex Summit brought together five dozen speakers, who led participants on a journey of discovery. “Together, we traveled from a remote and icy Arctic citizen science mission to conserving African wildlife and preserving sacred tribal rituals and cultural traditions. We witnessed the latest discoveries in space, oceans and on Earth and got a glimpse of the next chapters”, says the organization, in a statement.

This year, the journey continues on Terceira Island. More information at
