Two students from Victoria and Vancouver, BC have been selected by Power To Be to take part in the Students on Ice 2018 Arctic Expedition. Students on Ice (SOI) was established in 2000 with the mandate to educate the world’s youth about the importance of the Polar Regions and to inspire initiatives that contribute to global sustainability. Their ship-based expedition will bring together more than 100 youth from around the world with inspiring scientists, elders, educators, artists, musicians, CEO’s, dignitaries, journalists, authors, and innovators. Immersed in nature and engaged in cross-disciplinary activities, students will be inspired, motivated, educated and challenged. Activities will include wildlife encounters, visits to Arctic communities, as well as the opportunity to acquire first-hand knowledge and insight into the dynamics of climate change, traditional knowledge, scientific research, policy and other important Arctic and global topics.
The Students on Ice 2018 Arctic Expedition is the journey of a lifetime taking place July 23rd to August 7th, 2018. Full scholarships are available for a majority of student participants! Scholarship application deadline is March 1, 2018.
