Johan Ernst Nilson is a Swedish explorer also known as "environmental explorer" because of his interest for environment and climate-related issues.

Johan was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and he accomplished more than 28 adventures in 100 countries. Johan is today holding lectures about motivation and environmental awareness when he is not on expeditions.

Climate Neutral Expeditions[edit]

After his filmwork with the Polar Research Team, Johan started to collaborate with Respect Climate. The idea was to open up the eyes of the explorers around the world; what can we do to make this planet a better place? In 2008 Johan finished his project; "Seven Summits Climate Neutral". After the world first Climate Neutral Everest expedition Johan got elected Swedish President at ESA, "Everest Summiteers Association" and member of The Explorers Club.


Some of these expeditions are done solo, other in teams and some as a film producer together with another explorer.
