The World Arctic Fund is a non-government organization established in Berlin
by international media, science and environmental experts, who aim to protect the Arctic.
WHAT WE DO
We support arctic researchers who cannot complete their research for lack of funds within their national research institutions and help them carry out sampling and observations in regions not covered yet by mainstream research organizations.
We promote public awareness of the Arctic region’s strategic importance for a sustainable future by popularizing these research expeditions and their to the general public.
We are launching the first expedition to the Arctic with the use of 4 sailing boats. The expedition is spearheaded
by Capt. Simone Orlandini
Message from the President
Climate change and global warming are the major causes of the rise of disastrous weather events all over the planet.
A complex problem whose solution is a major challenge for humankind. If we do not act now, the average temperature of planet earth will raise by as much as 4° by the end of the century. Desertification, extreme heat waves, tropical storms and rising sea levels are just some of the catastrophic impacts, that will affect millions of lives and entire regions of the world.
