Finnmark 2007 Expedition
Hi I thought you’d be interested in this: details below. thanks.
A unique dog-sledding expedition focusing on the early victims of climate change - leaving the UK for the arctic on March the 7th 2007.
“We shall be travelling on dogsleds through Arctic Finnmark, from the Barents Sea to the Atlantic, a journey of close to 1,500 kilometres in rugged conditions and temperatures ranging from minus 10 degrees C to minus 35 degrees”
The expedition focuses on the lives of an indigenous people of Finnmark, the Sámi. It’s a human story rather than a cold scientific story. It’s a drama that is easily relatable through interviews and observation - the effects of climate change will be made real and the implications more pressing by focusing on real lives.
