120 youth from 13 countries learn lessons on life with Students On Ice
From the Arctic south, there is a trickle-down effect. It’s a connection that Shadelle Molloy and Sammy Meyers now know.
Through a partnership with Power To Be and Students On Ice, Wilderness School alumni Shadelle and Sammy joined the 2016 Arctic Expedition with Power To Be staff member Sarah Glenn. The once-in-a-lifetime experience saw them travel from Vancouver Island to Greenland on an educational trip that artfully blended science and culture to inspire youth to take action.
Flying from Victoria to Ottawa and onward to Iqaluit, Shadelle recalls the anticipation growing as the group of 120 youth from 13 countries zipped through the darkness on small boats to the ship that would be their floating home for the next three weeks.
When they woke up, the world had transformed.
