ANTARCTIC CLIMATE EXPEDITION 2023

Project Brief

 

 

February 2023, will be a moment in time of a gathering of great minds for commitments to resolve what it takes, to move from where we are now to get to a better future.  This can be Your Legacy; you can helps change the current course from a catastrophic outcome to a healthy, habitable planet.  Please do this for the next generation, for the future of humanity.

 

BRIEF 

The master plan of the Antarctic Climate Expedition is to bring about public and government awareness of the importance and the splendour of the Antarctic, and to address the warming climate and loss of ice in the southern polar region as a direct threat to the future of human life on this planet. The purpose of this expedition is to confront the consequences and develop creative strategies for everyone to radically reduce carbon emissions. Expedition members are expected to help formulate 23 resolutions to inspire transformative changes for a global net-zero emissions by 2050. You can be part of this pivotal summit to save our environment for future generations. 

 

 

The narratives and images from this expedition aim to encourage the way people see and understand the Antarctic, enlightenment that will hopefully catalyse a much-needed paradigm shift away from indifference and into action to protect our natural world. The outcome of this expedition: a series of lectures, feature documentary, exhibitions, book and importantly 23 resolutions to stimulate transformative change for net-zero emissions by 2050. You can be a part of the legacy that helps change the current course from a calamitous state to a healthy, habitable planet.
