A Look at the 5 Laureates of the 2021 Rolex Awards

Established in 1976, The Rolex Awards are a component of a three-part pillar in the Rolex Perpetual Planet initiative, which supports those working towards a better future by conserving the environment and improving its well-being. This year’s five recipients of the 2021 Rolex Awards for Enterprise include social entrepreneur Felix Brooks-Church, geographer and climate advocate Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, conservationist Rinzin Phunjok Lama, polar explorer Gina Moseley, and marine scientist Luiz Rocha. “Rather than venturing into the unknown and discovering uncharted lands, the new breed of explorers is committed to protecting the planet. The five Laureates are prime examples of these guardians of the future,” reveals Rolex Director of Communication & Image, Arnaud Boetsch. Meet these exemplary trailblazers in the congratulatory video below.
