This expedition celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the founding of the Qomolangma (Mt.Everest) National Nature Preserve (QNNP). At the time, it was the first major protected area in the world to rely on the stewardship of local people instead of outside wardens.
Future Generations, a conservation partner of the Tibet Autonomous Region, will lead a small and private light mountaineering expedition into the Gama Valley of the Qomolangma (Mt. Everest) National Nature Preserve (QNNP) in Tibet, China from October 13 - November 4, 2013. More details are at www.univworld.org and the sponsoring organizations of future.org and future.edu.
Membership on this expedition is open only to individuals who make a substantial contribution to the work of Future Generations. More details on the conservation work of Future Generations in China are available at: future.org and china.future.org.
