Inspiring travel: Polarising debates in the Arctic

Sep 29 2018

My name is Hari Tamang. I am 21 and I am a student at United World College (UWC) Red Cross Nordic (RCN). In this blog I recount my recent expedition to the Arctic as part of a think-tank of 100 individuals tasked with discussing technology, sustainability and ethics in the Earth’s northernmost region.
