This week Geoff presented at the Canadian Foreign Service Institute as part of the Global Affairs Canada staff training on the intersection between traditional knowledge & science diplomacy.

Geoff spoke about how Students on Ice provides an opportunity for students to experience our Northern & Arctic communities, its peoples & research.

It was a great opportunity to share SOI’s role in cultivating multi-disciplinary approaches to understanding the challenges and opportunities that we face as a global society.

The Students on Ice expeditions are the first step in a life-long journey for our youth participants. It isn’t enough to be inspired by these experiences but to use what we learn to make a difference when they go home.
