National Geographic launched the inaugural On Campus program at the University of Miami on November 9-10, 2018. We brought together innovative National Geographic Explorers—photographers, scientists, storytellers, and educators—UM scholars, local thought leaders, and students.


We explored solutions to the critical issues facing the planet—and its citizens—during the “World Without Borders” Science & Storytelling Symposium, the Explorer Meet & Greet, and the National Geographic-Led Workshops.
