Wide Arctic is a travel on the east coast of Baffin Island, in northern Canada. This trek serves to support an educational program aiming to introduce children aged 10 to 12 to global warming and sustainable development.

Philippe Legrain and Charles-Edouard de Croix will try to rally Inuit communities of Pond Inlet and Clyde River, travelling some 700 km southbound. Children from four classes back in Belgium will, through our dedicated blog, follow up on the expedition and interact with the team throughout the journey.
