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 has passed for all applicants except youth from the following regions:

  • San Francisco Bay Area – application deadline March 31 at 11:59pm EST (open only to students who attend the Climate One event on March 16)

We are still accepting non scholarship applicants from around the world until May 1, 2017.
