Returning to the Arctic

By Cape Farewell // Friday 17 Oct // 14:14:19 // View

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.

Visiting spectacular Disko Bay

By Cape Farewell // Friday 17 Oct // 14:03:17 // View

In September 2008 Cape Farewell returned to Greenland to continue the work started in 2007. The Art/Science crew began their 10 day sail in West Greenland, visiting the spectacular Disko Bay area and the Jakobshavn Glacier, one of Greenland’s largest glaciers moving at a faster rate than ever before, losing 20 million tons of ice every day.

Working in partnership with the British Geological Survey, the scientists extended their investigations of climate change with extensive surveying below the seabed.

The arts crew, dominated by an international array of musicians including Laurie Anderson, Vanessa Carlton, Jarvis Cocker, Feist, Robyn Hitchcock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, KT Tunstall and Martha Wainwright also featured artists, comedians, architects, film-makers and journalists.

Follow the 2008 Disko Bay Expedition in blogs from over 40 artists, musicians and scientists as we sailed through the extraordinary Disko Bay. During the voyage we brushed aside snow and broke out our portable satellite gear to broadcast text, images and video direct from the deck of the boat. Check the expedition website, subscribe to the podcast or view the galleries of images and video to journey with us.
