Arctic Expedition 2017
August 8-23, 2017
Welcome! Bienvenue! Tunngasugit!
The 2017 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 more than 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.
Applications are now open to join the expedition as a Student or a Staff. There are several scholarships available for Canadian and international youth. The deadline to apply for scholarships is March 1, 2017!
