“Our Arctic Challenge” is a documentary which will open everyone’s eyes to the realities of climate change. The fragile Arctic environment is testimony to the biggest and fastest signs of climate change.
Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency (EEA), and three of her colleagues have chosen to be part of an extraordinary journey across East Greenland. Traveling from their offices in Copenhagen to participate in a multisport adventure race, they challenge themselves through 250 kilometres of the Arctic wilderness.
On their way they encounter the effects of climate change first hand and meet eye witnesses to the impact of the Arctic environment. The Inuit are among the first people to experience the effects of climate change. They are in the middle of an environmental challenge that will change many parts of their culture.
What is happening to Inuit’s today will happen to the rest of the world tomorrow.
