Self-Isolation in the Arctic: shining a light on Climate Change 
By Sunniva Sorby
Sunniva Sorby - REMOTE Talks 2020
After spending a year (including three unplanned months due to the pandemic) at a remote trappers cabin in the high Arctic called Bamsebu, Polar Ambassadors and Citizen Scientists Sunniva Sorby, former Global Director of Sales for Polar Latitudes, and her Expedition partner, Hilde Fålun Strøm, came back to a world even more drastically changed by the global crisis than the one they had left. 

They cut ties to all things familiar, uprooted themselves and used their uninsulated cabin, which had no running water or electricity, as a science outpost to collect data for international researchers studying climate change, recording observations of wildlife and engaging with over 5,000 schoolkids around the world. The closest town was 140 kilometers away. They were isolated and vulnerable, the polar bears being their closest neighbors.
Hilde, Ettra and Sunniva
Sunniva will share what we can learn from isolation, the importance of immersing ourselves in nature and why collaboration focused on protecting our natural world became the “Hearts in the ice” mission!
