Oskar Kihlborg is one of Sweden’s more experienced adventurers, lecturers and photographers. Among other things, he and Mikael Reuterswärd became the first Swedes to reach the top of Mount Everest. He has also participated in five Himalayan expeditions and became the first Scandinavian on the world’s fourth highest mountain, Lhotse. Today, Oskar’s environmental commitment is strong and one of the driving forces in his adventure. From guiding groups to Kilimanjaro, he has chosen to end it after seven years after seeing how the glaciers at the top become smaller each year.

“I am convinced that everyone can contribute and help the planet feel better. Maybe we should start by changing the name of our planet, Mother Earth ; I think we treat the planet like a teenager who comes home to his mother and gets food, leaves dirty laundry and borrows a hundred bucks (which we do not return). And mom always loves us unconditionally. Maybe it’s time for us to start treating our earth like a newborn baby who really needs to be taken care of. ”
