Solar Impulse: an exploration to change the world
With the psychiatrist and explorer Dr. Bertrand Piccard: initiator and pilot of the first Round-The-World solar flight
26th of April 2017 - 14h30
Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse, the very first airplane capable of flying perpetually without fuel. It is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and achieve the impossible, as he did with his two round-the-world flights, recently in a solar-powered airplane, and before that non-stop in a balloon. By initiating the Solar Impulse project, his ambition has been to leverage a pioneering spirit for a useful contribution to the cause of renewable energies and clean technologies. With his dual identities as medical doctor and explorer, Bertrand has become an influential voice heard among the most distinguished institutions across the globe as a forward-thinking leader for progress and sustainability.
Dr. Bertrand Piccard will present his project Solar Impulse, and dedication to changing the world through greater recourse to clean technologies.
