THE ARCTIC JUBILEE EXPEDITION 2012
The Arctic Jubilee expedition 2012 will be hosting the world's most remote tea party on the summit of Mount Barbeau, in the Canadian Arctic to celebrate HM Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. Once at the summit they will be sending a Loyal Greeting to the Queen to which the Royal Household have pledged to reply! The seven-man Anglo-Canadian team (including an Inuit Hunter and athlete) will be responding to questions from the UK and further afield. A Panel of Experts, including Polar educators and Scientists, will also support the answering of questions. The expedition will promote the understanding of topics such as Inuit Culture, Polar Environments, British History and Exploration.
Education Through Expeditions, founded by Polar Explorer Antony Jinman, has six years experience working in partnership with Parks Canada, promoting and delivering an educational outreach programme to promote the Arctic environment to over 350 UK schools.
