Our Youth Programme

The first speech climate activist Greta Thunberg gave at the World Economic Forum in Davos happened at Arctic Basecamp when she camped with us in 2019. 

Since then, Arctic Basecamp has been facilitating youth participation at global events to raise awareness of the global risks from Arctic change and to highlight the need for scaleable solutions to climate change. 

In 2020, we brought an international youth climate delegation to Davos with Sascha Blidorf from Greenland, Eva Jones from USA, Vanessa Nakate from Uganda, Kaime Silvestre from Brazil, and Wenying Zhu from China.

In 2022 we continued bringing youth voices to Davos with a delegation of six youth voices; Cassidy Kramer from Alaska USA, Kaime Silvestre from Brazil, Helena Gualinga from Ecuador, John Paul Jose from India, Sophia Kianni from USA/Iran and Ilyess El Kortbi from Ukraine. 

We ‘speak science to power’ in order to encourage bold climate action. We do this to encourage a movement for change, because we know that what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic. 

We want to support youth at the forefront of this movement.
