Founded by Craig Mathieson, Scotland's greatest living polar explorer, the Polar Academy is described as "the toughest youth challenge in Europe". Craig and his team's mission is to transform the life-chances of 'invisible' youths in schools in Scotland, resulting in them becoming role models for the next generation.

Speaking about the forthcoming event Craig Allan from Shackleton said: "The Polar Academy founder, Craig Mathieson is one of the most inspirational speakers I’ve ever seen and it is an event not to be missed. We would be delighted to invite Fife Chamber members to attend."
