 Patrick Degerman  - Microsite

In Detail

Pata's purpose is fuelled by witnessing the impact of climate change firsthand and realising that we need urgent collective action to protect our planet. With each expedition, he returns armed with firsthand accounts and photographs of melting glaciers and shrinking wildlife habitats in the world's most vulnerable regions. Shaken by the rapid changes, he has spent the past 23 years delivering speeches. His long-term mission begins today and is renewed every day with a commitment to our planet, to conserving our wildlife, land, and water; advocating for the environment; and inspiring others to act with a global mindset.


Pata's keynotes take you on an adventure around the planet. His talks are illustrated with stunning pictures and videos from the untouched jungles to the snowy plains of the Arctic and Antarctic. The engaging keynotes combine education, entertainment, cause-driven leadership and climate action.
