  • The Arctic is melting faster than anyone predicted.

  • Climate change is here, and this affects us all.

  • It's time to stop and think, not go up there and drill for more oil.

  • This April, four young people will trek to

  • the North Pole to declare it protected for all life on earth

  • I'm just learning the first things that I

  • can't do

  • Here we go

  • I can't seem to stay on the snow, I'm just too big I think

  • We will get there, somehow

  • Renny

  • Woah I did it!

  • It kind of feels like it's a tough job

  • Josefina

  • Hopefully we don't fall too much

  • Kiera

  • How do you go to the bathroom up there?

  • Fast!

  • Why are we bringing this joker?

  • Ezra

  • I'm Sol, I'll be joining them, and I'm

  • way out of my league

  • We're not bringing in mobile showers? What are you guys talking about!

  • I'm definitely confused right now

  • We're not polar explorers, in fact we're

  • amateurs at best

  • My hands are starting to freeze

  • Welcome to the club

  • But we're coming together on behalf of millions on a mission to the top of the world

  • This expedition is no joke, it's a grueling

  • trek across the frozen Arctic Ocean that'll push us to our limits in more ways than one.

  • When we reach the north pole - if we make it - we're gonna cut a hole in the ice

  • and lower a capsule containing the names of almost 3 million of our supporters to the

  • seabed 4km below.

  • We'll mark the spot with a flag for the

  • future, a flag designed by a 13 year old girl, a flag that stands for global unity, a flag

  • that stands in opposition to previous attempts to claim this region for any one country

  • By raising our voices we can push those in

  • power to safeguard the Arctic for generations to come

  • Sounds like a challenge to me

  • So follow our journey, spread the word, and

  • together we might just change the world.

The Arctic is melting faster than anyone predicted.
