ClimateForce 2019 - Get me to the North Pole!

Introduction

Hi there,

I’m Boglarka, a 24-years-old university student from Hungary, who’s lucky (and passionate) enough to join the 2041 ClimateForce expedition to the North Pole in June 2019. After being chosen to become a ClimateForce Arctic Ambassador, I am keen to raise awareness & document the impact of climate change on the Arctic, to show YOU the reality of a place we thought is untouched by human activity. 
With your help, I'll be able to conduct my research on the reality of climate change on the Arctic, participate in a pioneer project, learn documentation and field techniques & leadership skills, and gain incredible experiences to help me kickstart my career in the field of environmental science.

If you back my campaign, we can make a difference together and raise awareness on climate change issues. Watch my video & keep on reading to learn more about my project!

But who I am and what do I even want to do on the North Pole?

Having recently finished my studies in International Relations, I’m heading to Scotland this Fall to study Environmental Management (MSc). I’ve recently become a trained Climate Reality Leader, and previously volunteered for NGOs such as WWF and Jane Goodall Institute. My biggest dream is to work in the field of ocean research and study the impact of climate change and other environmental issues on marine ecosystems. Thus, when I heard about the 2041 ClimateForce mission, I didn’t hesitate for a second. Now, having been chosen to join the expedition, I am about to experience the greatest adventure of my life.

So here I am, this is me. I’m passionate about nature, I truly love and care about it, and want to protect as much of it as I possibly can. I’m keen to start a change – and become a part of it.
Help me be the change.

 

 

About 2041 ClimateForce

The whole mission of the 2041 Foundation started with two incredible people, father and son: Sir Robert Swan, the first man to walk both poles, and Barney Swan, who became a groundbreaker by going on an expedition to the Antarctic, powered entirely by renewable energy. Their goals include establishing a new standard of carbon-neutral traveling, education about sustainability, and raising awareness on climate change and other environmental issues.

They started the ClimateForce Challenge together to help the youth, the future leaders get inspired and involved in the action for a sustainable tomorrow.

The Expedition

  • Carbon Neutral Journey: the 2041 expeditions are certified Carbon Neutral Voyages. Together with The Explorer's Passage, 2041 ClimateForce also announced the creation of the Arctic Carbon Negative Initiative (ACNI), which is to establish new CO2 standard protocols for the global travel industry 
     
  • Leadership on the Edge: on this ClimateForce mission, team members will also participate in a program which consists of leadership development, climate change training and sustainability education, in order to help them deliver the message of global environmental issues and possible solutions
     
  • Professionals of National Geographic are joining the expedition to help research and document the impact of climate change on the Arctic
