Insurer Allianz has launched a new programme aimed at ‘curious minds’ to get them to explore and share those explorations.

Called the Global Explorer Programme, the initiative is a series of partnerships, activations, and platforms focused on exploring how disruptive technologies can drive a more sustainable way of life. Main pillars of the programme are the new Explorer Hub micro-conferences, the expanded FIA Formula E Championship partnership, and crowd-sourced Explorer stories.

“As one of the world’s largest global insurers, it’s our job to serve and protect risk takers,” said Jean-Marc Pailhol, head of group market management and distribution at Allianz SE. “To do this, we need to understand risk, we need to explore every aspect of it.

“The Allianz Global Explorer Programme is a manifestation of our curiosity and helps us to develop the right expertise. We want to accompany courageous and curious people and encourage them to live a full life.”

The programme kicked off over the weekend at the 2017/18 series Formula E Championship race in Hong Kong, with Allianz collaborating with WIRED magazine for the first Explorer Hub micro-conference. Discussions centred on the impact of disruptive technologies on urban spaces, and how it drives sustainable change.

As part of the programme, Allianz has also expanded its long-term partnership with Formula E, showcasing immersive experiences and activities at the FIA Formula E Championship. As for Allianz Explorer Stories, video content will be crowdsourced in an effort to encourage sharing of personal explorations.
