The Mission

A team of adventurers and climate scientists are heading out to study the Arctic climate on 1 May 2022.

 

They will retrace the journey made by the historic polar explorer Prof. A.E. Nordenskiöld and his team during the Swedish Polar Expedition of 1872-1873. The team will travel with skis and heavy pulks and be out on an unsupported journey of around 35 days. During this time, they will conduct climate experiments to learn more about the melting polar regions.

The Film

A documentary film will be made about the expedition.

 

More than anything, the film will put a face to climate science. It will showcase the real heroes working tirelessly to ensure that we have the information that we need to make decisions to safeguard humanity's future.
