On Friday, Geoff Green and five youth alumni from the Students on Ice Foundation took part in a live streamed roundtable discussion with the U.S Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken as a part of his first virtual trip to Canada.

 “It is an incredible honour for Students on Ice to be part of a roundtable discussion with Secretary Blinken,” says Geoff Green. “Engaging youth in learning about and contributing to the Arctic and its Peoples is a value we both share, and I look forward to what I hope will be the first of many important discussions.”

Geoff Green and Students on Ice alumni had the unique opportunity to discuss bilateral collaboration, Arctic policy, youth engagement and climate change with Secretary Blinken.

This event was made possible thanks to the Embassy of the United States in Canada, which has supported youth and educators on SOI’s expeditions, and through educational and professional development opportunities since 2014.
