International campaign about Ignacy Domeyko and Władysław Wagner

We didn't get to know Ignacy Domeyko and Władysław Wagner as famous and unreachable historical figures, but as our close friends and spiritual leaders. Their achievements inspired us to work on behalf of others and discover our limits. We wish to present Domeyko and Wagner from our own, unique perspective.

Ignacy Domeyko

1802 - 1889

He was a Polish geologist and a precursor of mining industry and education in Chile. He defended rights of native Americans and became an honorary citizen of Chile. He was awarded with honoris causa doctorate by the Jagiellonian University. He was friends with Adam Mickiewicz – a well known Polish poet.

,,To live being useful for others, otherwise not to live.” ~ Ignacy Domeyko

Władysław Wagner

1912 - 1992

He was the first Pole to sail the world. He started his voyage in Gdynia when he was 19 years old. Throughout the expedition, he lost his yacht two times and hence sailed on three – Zjawa I, Zjawa II, Zjawa III. The World War II interrupted his travel. After its end, he couldn’t bear the communist regime in Poland and therefore he spent the rest of his life in emigration.

,,Poland, which’s just regained it’s independence… he wanted to show it to the world!” ~ Olimpia Wagner
