Voyage for the Future

Voyage for the Future ambassadors ask: Are you on board?
Ambassadors say: Take action now!
18 young adults from 9 countries participated in a ten-day expedition in June 2008 that took them along the coast of Svalbard and taught them about climate change science and the global feedback effects associated with rising Arctic temperatures.

Voyage participants now serve as WWF ‘Ambassadors for Change’, sharing their knowledge to stimulate broad public support for measures to radically reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
