2017 Arctic Expedition

The 2017 Arctic Expedition will be a profound ship-based expedition for youth to expand their knowledge of the changing circumpolar world, foster new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain the inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.

Canada C3

Along the route, the 2017 Arctic Expedition will also meet up with Canada C3, an SOI lead Canada 150 signature project. Canada C3 will be a journey of discovery and celebration that will explore the people and places that have shaped Canada’s identity in the past and will generate inspiring visions for Canada’s future. Screen Shot 2016-08-30 at 2.31.12 PM

En route, Canada C3 will explore Canada’s three oceans and the longest coastline in the world, while honouring Canada’s vibrant indigenous and non-indigenous  coastal communities and cultures.

 

Q is for Qajaq

Q is for Qajaq is a collaborative initiative with craftspeople, explorers, and Canadian Inuit groups to help inspire a renaissance of kayaking and kayak-building in Canada’s Arctic. The initiative has already inspired an alumni initiative in the Iqaluit Qajaq Society, a project funded by Students on Ice and Polar Knowledge Canada’s POLAR Inspiration Grants.
