Installation of 3 weather stations in the south of Greenland (Prince Christian Sound) with the University of Liège (Belgium)
These weather stations will study the katabatic winds in order to measure the wind potential of South Greenland. The stations are installed for a period of 3 years and transmit the data directly to the university using a satellite connection.
Stops in different villages and interviews with the locals about the changes observed in Greenland
- Fishermen about new fish species, longer summers with more ice-free days and rising water temperatures
- Farmers and archaeologists in the village of Igaliku
- Scientists and geologists about the proposed mining projects
Planting trees with the Danish association “Greenland Trees”
We’ve planted 4,000 trees in two weeks. We stayed for a week with the glaciologists who are conducting this carbon offset project from 26th August to 1st September. We are financing part of the trees to offset the emissions linked to our expedition.

I share your approach and your commitment to the Arctic.
It is on the ground that we acquire the experience, the legitimacy and the strength to speak about it.
I support the Unu Mondo expedition.

We are seeing a massive change very very quickly and these Arctic communities are like the canary in the coal mine – they are seeing it before anyone else. I’m proud to support Unu Mondo’s Expedition highlighting Climate change on these communities.
