Les Explorateurs (The Explorers) is a podcast about how real people are making the future they want to live in. You'll hear bite-sized immersive stories recorded at thecamp. P.S. - there will be bonus episodes in English!

Loïc Blaise, aviator and explorer, has nature and aviation in his DNA. He is the first pilot in the history of aeronautics to have successfully flown around the Arctic Circle aboard Polar Kid, a ultralight, environmentally responsible seaplane prototype, with Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev.

Flight instructor and airline pilot, he flew one of the last PBY Catalina seaplanes still in operation in the world, when multiple sclerosis deprived him of his pilot's license. Since that day, keeping alive the fight has been a life or death imperative. He decided to tie his destiny to that of the polar worlds.

He works on coming up with concrete solutions for decarbonizing the planet, and also promoting them. "eartH2" will demonstrate this, with a new world-first: a zero-emissions flight on board an electric seaplane powered by hydrogen.
