Cape Farewell has brought together on the web scientists, educators and artists to collectively address and raise awareness about global warming. Three trips to the High Arctic are the background of the project, taking there scientists from the National Oceanography Centre, secondary school teachers of Science and Geography and high-profile British artists. Together they have explored the Spitsbergen Archipelago, witnessing first-hand the effects of global warming and coming to terms with the threat climate change poses to our planet’s stability. Visitors to the Cape Farewell site, which is highly interactive, are invited to share in this exploration.
