Youth climate leaders from around the world set sail today from Reykjavik, Iceland to begin a 14-day journey across the Arctic. The educational adventure is part of partner Cape Farewell’s Youth Expedition of 2008, and features 28 youth leaders from every province in Canada and from countries around the world. On board, these young environmental leaders will learn from teachers, scientists, mentors and others about climatology, biogeography, the intersection of art and science, and more as it relates to the changing Arctic environment. Along the way they’ll be blogging, making videos, and doing web casts back to their schools and communities at home, so stay tuned! For more information about the expedition, here’s the main site, the expedition map, and blog. Bon voyage from the 350 crew!
