After W. Steger's expedition 'Global Warming 101', here is another arctic expedition which aims to sail through the North West Passage and visit the most remote settlements of the Inuit people.

The Arctic Voice Expedition 2007-08 is the first stage of a wider project that aims to bring to the United Kingdom a raised understanding of how our actions are affecting the Arctic and its people - the Inuit - through climate change.

It is endorsed by the Royal Geographical Society and the International Polar Year scientific programme. The expedition itself consists of a kayaking journey following the route of the historic Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic in the summers of 2007 and 2008 and an overland journey by ski and dog sled in the winter/spring of 2008.

The aim is to visit remote settlements and hunting camps and to meet residents of the Arctic to hear their story of a changing world.

Arctic Voice is much more than the expedition. A central element is to forge links between the Inuit and the people of the UK by setting up partnerships between schools throughout the Arctic and schools in the UK. Schools along the route in Canada and further east in Greenland have been twinned with a partner school in the UK, so beginning a dialogue between the two communities. During the expedition the team will visit each school to promote these links.
