A Bit of Background
CLIMATE SENTINELS AT A GLANCE
Climate Sentinels is a project created by four female scientists who deeply care about making polar research more accessible and more sustainable.
In April 2021 we will set off for the first carbon-neutral research expedition on the island of Spitsbergen in the Norwegian High Arctic. We will cover hundreds of miles using muscle force only, and collect new samples to better understand the deposition of black carbon in the Arctic, while collaborating with schools around the world.

We sincerely regret to inform you that, given the exceptional circumstances triggered by the COVID-19 virus outbreak, we are forced to postpone our 2020 Svalbard ski expedition.
The adventure however is not over, and we anticipate to reschedule our expedition in a year’s time, which is the next time-window possible for such an expedition.
In the hope of your continued assistance, we aim to inspire, educate and empower even more in April 2021 !
