GATINEAU, QC, July 19, 2023 — The Students on Ice (SOI) Foundation is returning to the Torngat Mountains National Park as part of their 2023 expedition programming. This inspiring youth expedition takes place from July 16-31, 2023, bringing youth from across Canada and around the world, together with leaders, educators, elders, artists, and scientists creating a powerful, hands-on learning, and life-changing experience.
“We’re thrilled to return to Nunatsiavut and the Torngat Mountains National Park. A place of incredible beauty, wonder, and spirits. A place that touches your soul and connects you to something so much bigger than yourself.” – Geoff Green, Founder, SOI Foundation
The expedition will take place aboard a Mi’kmaq-owned expedition vessel which will be used as a platform for education, research, and communication during the UN Ocean Decade. Over 50% of the youth participants are Indigenous and over 90% of the youth have been fully supported by scholarships thanks to all the generous supporters and partners who have made this expedition possible.
