Arctic Expedition 2021

July 22 – August 5, 2021


The Arctic 2021 expedition will bring together more than 100 high school and university students from across the Arctic and around the world along with inspiring scientists, elders, artists, musicians, dignitaries, historians, thought leaders and innovators. Immersed in nature and engaged in cross-disciplinary activity, students will be inspired, motivated, educated and challenged.

The students who are drawn to SOI’s expeditions are not regular students. They already show the makings of leaders, innovators, creators and change-makers in their home schools, communities and countries. SOI simply provides an environment filled with curious youth, world-class educators and an incredibly unique classroom setting where these students will thrive. The result is knowledgeable, inspired, and empowered youth whose connection to the land, to peers and mentors from around the world, and to an understanding of the environmental, social, and political landscape shapes their perspectives and impact on our world.
