History of 2111


Welcome to our site! 

"Humankind now faces the dual challenges of the environmental preservation of the Earth and the exploration of space. Both are essential to our quality of life and our future. Neither goal can exclude the other and success in either requires boldly advancing on both. By supporting and encouraging exploration that bridges these complementary goals, the Twenty-one Eleven Foundation seeks to promote and fulfil the vision of Earth as an oasis, cared for by a space-faring civilization."

Mission Statement, Twenty-one Eleven Foundation

The Twenty-one Eleven Foundation for Exploration is an international charity that supports field research that enhances the exchange of knowledge between the environmental and space exploration communities.
