  2007 Expedition:

The first Cape Farewell expedition to originate
in Canada takes place September 7-20, 2008, when 16 Canadian
high school students representing each province and territory
will join an international group of students on an expedition
of discovery to Canada’s Arctic.



After training in Toronto followed by air
transfer to Iceland, the expedition departs from Reykjavik
(Iceland) on September 7, rounding Cape Farewell on the southern
tip of Greenland and arriving at Iqaluit (Baffin Island)
on September 20.


In September 2007, 12 young voyagers from
Canada, UK and Germany sailed around the Norwegian Arctic
to raise awareness about climate change. This expedition was
a chance for youth to learn about the science of climate change
and to communicate this important issue through art.
