Live broadcast for 400 students in US & Canada

December 7th Andreas had the great pleasure of doing a live broadcast for 400 school children in the US & Canada, speaking about sailing in the Arctic and nature conservation.

The presentation was hosted by Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, whose goal is to inspire the next generation of scientists and explorers. They do this by bringing science, exploration, adventure and conservation live into classrooms through virtual guest speakers and field trips with leading experts around the world. Our goal is still to reach 200 000 school children with the Arctic Sense expedition, and with this, we are off to a good start. The 50 minute long presentation can be seen here.

 

We received a number of comments from the students including this one from a 4th grader from Glenview, Illinois: “The most important thing that I thought was helpful was not to throw stuff in the ocean and recycle, because then we can save the animals in it.” With these words we wish you all a great and plastic minimalistic Christmas!
