Antarctic expedition

In 2012, OTI sponsored Zeena Al Towayya on her trip to the Interational Antarctic Expedition 2041. The trip was to explore Antarctica, its wildlife and unique landscapes as well as promote sustainability and efforts to combat climate change. Zeena took the trip with noted polar explorer Robert Swan who is the first man to ever walk unsupported to both the North and South poles. Swan is also a famous speaker and activist working hard to combat the effects of man-made climate change and raise awareness around the issue.

OTI's sponsorship enabled Zeena to purchase the equipment necessary for her to undertake the trip to Argentina and then on into the Antarctic.
