A Special Invite to Learn About Two Amazing Women Scientists
“Two Women, one dog, no electricity or running water, nine months in a trapper’s cabin, three months in total darkness. This is Hearts in the Ice. ” ~Carina Vinberg, co-author of Changing Conversations for a Changing World
In 2019-2020 Sunniva Sorby and Hilde Fålun Strøm became the first women in history to overwinter in the Arctic without men. They have spent the last winter isolated at the 78th parallel in the Norwegian Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, in a small uninsulated trapper’s hut called “Bamsebu”, with no running water or electricity, and subjected to one of the harshest climates on earth, surrounded by polar bears and total darkness. They are civilian scientists and their Hearts In The Ice promotes global dialogue about the changes we are experiencing in the Polar Regions, why these changes matter for the rest of the world, and what we can do about protecting our natural world. They are now starting another winter in the Arctic.
