Arctic Expedition 2015
July 27 – August 10, 2015
Welcome! Bienvenue! Tunngasugit!
The 2015 Students on Ice Arctic expedition will be a profound hands-on experience for youth to expand their knowledge of the changing circumpolar world, foster a new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain the inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.
Our ship-based expedition will bring together 100 youth from around the world with inspiring scientists, elders, educators, artists, musicians, CEO’s, dignitaries, journalists, authors and innovators. Immersed in nature and engaged in cross-disciplinary activity, students will be inspired, motivated, educated and challenged.
Each day will be filled with exploration, discovery, presentations, workshops, hands-on research, hikes, and lots of adventure! Activities will include wildlife encounters, visits to Arctic communities, as well as the opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge and insight into the dynamics of climate change, traditional knowledge, scientific research, policy and other important Arctic and global topics.
Please explore this website for information about the 2015 Students on Ice Arctic Expedition. Meet our global team of students and staff, and beginning on July 27th, check back regularly for expedition updates including photos, videos and student blogs! We look forward to sharing our journey with you.
In the expedition spirit,
Geoff Green, C.M.
