The POLE OF POSSIBILITY aims to inspire thousands of young people around the world to believe in themselves and their dreams, and to champion the possibility that being BOLD and BRAVE, with PURPOSE and PRINCIPLES, that personal change can lead to local and global change.
The journey is a call to action about the power we each have to do more than we believe possible.
The Polar Academy
We are connected with the work of The Polar Academy and the POLE OF POSSIBILITY team includes POLAR ACADEMY graduate, Iona Somerville. The academy takes teenagers from a variety of backgrounds and inspires them through participation in Arctic expeditions. The young adults targeted for the expeditions are not those who fit the profile of the either high achievers or the other extreme, for which there is an abundance of initiatives already in existence. The Polar Academy aims to help the average young adult who struggles through life; surviving without recognition, and without feeling able to realise their full potential.
The journey will be filmed to produce a thought-provoking and educational documentary about THE POLE OF POSSIBILITY.
The team are working closely to develop links with world-leading educational organisations to inspire and educate young people . The team will live-stream with schools during their journey, on key technological and environmental issues, and on the critical role of Antarctica regarding climate change.
There will be a live broadcast to young people around the world from the POLE OF POSSIBILITY in January 2022. Learning from scientists and environmentalists, the team will communicate the vital role of Antarctica in maintaining global equilibrium. No-where on the planet are the affects of human impact on environment more apparent, yet the protection of this important continent is under threat when the Antarctic Treaty expires.
Schools and young people are also invited to take part in the POP Challenge
