What do you learn after spending 19 months alone in the Norwegian Arctic? 6 months of those in total darkness…
In May 2020, Hilde Fålun Strøm & Sunniva Sørby, made history as the first women to overwinter solo in the Norwegian Arctic, Svalbard as part of an extreme citizens science project.
EXTREME CITIZEN SCIENCE IN THE HIGH ARCTIC
From recording a Nasa rocket launch, capturing aurora time-lapses, shifting heavy ice, and observing over 100 Polar Bears, the Hearts in The Ice duo, will be joining us at this year’s World Extreme Medicine Conference to share their insights.
They will share the value of citizen scientists and what observation, hardship, fear, danger, and immersion in nature can teach us about pushing boundaries, compassion, and care. Leading us all on a journey of inspiration around the issues of climate change and the role each person can play.
HEARTS IN THE ICE
With a global network of diverse partners Hearts in the Ice is a platform that inspires, connects, educates, and ignites action on pressing Climate Change issues.
Together, their aim is to navigate towards a more thoughtful and sustainable way forward that will impact all of us, our children, and the natural world.
