Expedition to Antarctica
In February 2013, I will be joining an international youth coalition of Antarctic defenders to go on an expedition led by British polar explorer Robert Swan to Antarctica.Our goal is to raise awareness of the importance of preserving the last wilderness on Earth and champion renewable energy as a viable path to a sustainable future. This endeavor anticipates the 2041 re-negotiation of moratorium on mining in Antarctica.During the expedition, we will explore the Antarctic Peninsula and will gain firsthand knowledge of the continentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fragile ecosystem. I will document my experiences during the expedition through photography and videotaping.When I come back, I will present my experiences and findings to audiences in both the United States and China. I will also pursue a social media project to demonstrate that we as ordinary citizens are able to make a contribution to mitigating climate change by becoming more aware of the climate impacts of the products we use and making eco-friendly purchasing decisions.I have committed to raise $3,000 by October 15 as an expedition team member. Will you be one of 60 people to donate $50 toward that goal? Your support is indispensible in making this happen. Thank you very much for your contribution!
