Observations on Ice: Midsummer Journeys Through the Arctic Waters of Svalbard

Presenter: Synne Borgen, Norwegian writer based in Norway and New York City | Come along on a sailing trip through the Arctic waters of Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago between Norway and the North Pole. Explore the wonders great and small: polar bears, vast glaciers and the tiny flowers that manage to carve out a life in this inhospitable land. Borgen will reflect on what she has learned about observation and wonder; the frailty and adaptability of both human life and ecosystems.
