Join The Call of the Poles

Long protected by their remote location and buckled in by the surrounding ice, the poles are now severely affected by global warming and are progressively more involved in globalisation. We are in the midst of writing a new page of history and the future of these unique regions depends heavily on the wealth of support and heartfelt compassion that they receive from public opinion and politicians worldwide.

Join the 200 key figures involved in The Call of the Poles by sending one or two photos of yourself in an icy or snowy place, a biography of 90 words and a text of 300 words maximum giving us your personal account of a major issue about the Arctic or the Antarctic (ex. Inuit territorial claims, opening of new maritime routes in the Arctic ocean, increase of tourism in the Antarctic peninsula, preservation of the polar bear...).
We will add your name to the list of signatories below.
