Film Screening - Wonders of the Arctic

Wonders of the Arctic (2015) Directed by David Lickley

Dr Josephine Tan of the UN's Indigenous Peoples Committee and Dr. Martin Nweeia will be present at the screening, which is presented as a part of Sustainability Week NYC

The Explorers Club cordially invites you to the New York premiere screening of Wonders of the Arctic, a documentary film about troubling impacts of human activities on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier.

The Arctic has always been a place of mystery, myth and fascination. The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research. Instead of seeking to conquer the north, scientist pioneers are searching for answers to some troubling questions about the impacts of human activities around the world on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier.

Wonders of the Arctic centers on our ongoing mission to explore and come to terms with the Arctic, and the compelling stories of our many forays into this captivating place will be interwoven to create a unifying message about the state of the Arctic today. Underlying all these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are quickly overtaking the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.

Dr. Nweeia is the leading Narwhal expert who integrates the voices of the Inuit in his scientific research results. He has completed seven successful expeditions, including the Amazon and the Arctic.

Pamela Peeters, environmental economist and founder of "Sustainability Week NYC," will introduce the speakers, share the mission of this international initiative and will moderate the Q&A.
