World View designed its space tourism experience based on the company’s business purpose: World View exists to inspire, create, and explore new perspectives for a radically improved future. The company believes its space tourism experience provides customers with an “awe inspiring” journey, from the time spent at one of World View’s spaceports to the time spent at the edge of space. World View is on a mission to deliver this transformative moment to a critical mass of humans knowing that it could lead to a markedly improved future for our fragile planet.

In his new role, Grenier will collaborate with World View’s leadership to ideate and develop strategies to ensure the company's sustainability goals are met through global partnerships, programming, and initiatives. He will also contribute to the development of its environmental strategy while playing a key role in helping participants understand their individual relationship to the planet as they prepare for and reflect on their trip.

"Adrian’s history as an eco-activist speaks for itself. World View is happy to welcome Adrian as our Chief Earth Advocate. Our main goal is to enable customers to see the beauty of the Earth we inhabit so we can radically improve the future of our own planet. Adrian is an excellent advocate and will help us in our mission,” said Ryan Hartman, President and CEO of World View.

Conservation has long been at the heart of Grenier’s social activism. In 2017, he helped the UN Environment Programme launch Clean Seas, a campaign to end marine plastic pollution. He also supported Wild for Life, advocating for the conservation of sawfish. The Lonely Whale Foundation, which he co-founded, strives to inspire empathy towards marine species and develop lifelong advocates for ocean health. Its innovative StopSucking campaign aims to discourage the use of single-use plastic straws, which are particularly harmful to marine wildlife. Grenier actively supports organizations focused on habit-changing education.

“I am honored to serve as World View’s Chief Earth Advocate. The partnership allows me to use my platform to champion healthier, regenerative choices for the Earth. Space tourism is an exciting concept, and the fact that World View puts our interconnectedness squarely at the heart of exploration is in line with my personal values. Together, we will be able to honor the planet and encourage future generations to be better stewards of its resources and beauty,” said Adrian Grenier, Chief Earth Advocate of World View.

World View Mission: Rediscover Earth

World View’s global space tourism program will begin its first commercial flights in early 2024. Unlike any other space tourism company, World View plans to have flights depart from state-of-the-art spaceports located in iconic locations like the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef, providing participants the opportunity to experience natural and man-made wonders from the ground and the edge of space.

Flights will lift eight participants and two World View crew members in a zero-pressure stratospheric balloon and pressurized space capsule to 100,000 feet altitude, nearly 23 miles into the stratosphere, for a life-changing experience that will last six to 12 hours with average flight duration between six and eight hours. Participants will lift off before dawn to watch the sunrise over Earth, view the curvature of our planet and experience the darkness of space. They will see a world without borders, without race and will fully experience and immerse themselves in the beauty, fragility, history, and importance of the areas surrounding each location and of the Earth itself.

Anterra Capital: Pandemic and Food Price Inflation Fuel Investor Interest to Accelerate Transformation of the Food and Ag Sector18.5.2022 07:00:00 CEST | Press release

A crushing pandemic and, more recently, the Ukraine war have convinced investors more than ever that the world needs to radically change how it produces, distributes and consumes food, says Adam Anders, managing partner of the international food and agriculture specialist venture capital firm Anterra Capital (“Anterra”). Anders: “The pandemic highlighted the fragility and adverse health impacts of our current food system: soaring prices, empty shelves in stores; the fact that unhealthy diets are a major risk factor for getting Covid; that the way we treat farm animals could trigger the next pandemic. Post our final closing, the devastating impact of the Ukraine War on the global food supply has increased the awareness among investors even further. This, plus our focus on deploying proven biotech and digital solutions to shake up the lagging Food and Ag-sector, go a long way in explaining the higher than expected interest in our second fund.” Anterra is proud to announce the closing of
