A trained engineer, Alain has spent much of the past 25 years as a professional adventurer and environmentalist. He has been technical advisor to major outdoor equipment manufacturers, and his adventures have been the inspiration for several award-winning books and films. After participating in the first successful Belgian Arctic expedition, Alain completed the longest unsupported polar journey, over some 4000km, in Antarctica, a record that stands today. A public speaker on global warming and the polar environment, he has been involved in many research projects and exhibitions and recently established the International Polar Foundation.
