Against Climate Change
Launched by British explorer David Hempelman-Adams and Mars Gaming, the Mars Gaming Northabout Expedition is a cultural and travel endeavor which intends to raise awareness of the need to fight this 21st century threat and declare the Arctic a Global Sanctuary.
To achieve this, a multi-disciplinary expert team will travel on the sailboat Northabout, and attempt to sail in unprecedented latitudes for this kind of vessel. They will also explore places unseen, and document the impact of global warming on ecosystems and Inuit life.
In the last thirty years we have lost three quarters of the floating ice layer, and 2017 is on its way to become the warmest year in history. Climate Change not only threatens Arctic species and cultures, but the whole planet.
