Inspiring a New Generation: Educational Expeditions at the Ends of the Earth during the International Polar Year and Beyond
  • General public
During this dynamic multimedia presentation series members of the Students on Ice Foundations education team passionately addressed the most pressing environmental issues facing the polar regions and the planet. Presenters shared personal stories, photographs, perspectives, impacts and outcomes of unique transformative education programs that connect youth with the polar regions and the role the ends of the Earth play in the global ecosystem. Expedition participants who experienced the physical, biological and human dimensions of these regions have become leaders in creating a more sustainable future.
