Returning to the Arctic

By Cape Farewell // Friday 17 Oct // 14:14:19 // No Comments

Following the success of the 2007 Youth Expedition, Cape Farewell returned to the Arctic in September 2008 with the second Youth Expedition. The international crew of 28 young people from across the world, accompanied by educators, artists and scientists, sailed to Cape Farewell before crossing to West Greenland and finishing on Baffin Island. Organised in collaboration with the British Council Canada, the students acted as youth ambassadors for their schools and communities. From the Arctic they each completed art and science projects and talked live to their schools, communicating the global impact of climate change to their local communities.

Follow the journey of these youth ambassadors and watch the expedition as it happens in the blog and photo gallery on the dedicated 2008 Youth Expedition website.
