Students On Ice
The CBT, in partnership with Jamie’s Whaling Station and Adventure Centres, would like to send one youth delegate from the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region to take part in the Student On Ice Foundation’s 2019 Arctic Expedition (July 23- August 7, 2019). The 2019 Students On Ice Arctic expedition will be a profound hands-on experience for youth to expand their knowledge of the changing circumpolar world, foster a new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain the inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.
The 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 activity, students will be inspired, motivated, educated and challenged.
Each day will be filled with exploration, discovery, presentations, workshops, hands-on research, hikes, and lots of adventure! 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 expedition fee is covered by contributions from the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust and Jamie’s Whaling Station and Adventure Centres. However, the successful applicant will be required to pay for travel from their home to Ottawa where the journey begins. The successful youth will also be responsible for bringing suitable clothing and gear.
To be considered, students must:
