Hearts in the Ice, created by Hilde Fålun Strøm and Sunniva Sorby, is a platform for social engagement connecting students, scientists, manufacturers, environmental organizations, and all who care about the health of our planet, in the conversation around climate change.
With a Global Network of diverse partners Hearts in the Ice is a platform that inspires, connects, educates, and ignites action on pressing Climate Change issues.
Together, we are navigating towards a more thoughtful and sustainable way forward that will impact all of us, our children, and our natural world.
In 2019-20 Hilde and Sunniva spent a year at Bamsebu with 3 months in the “Polar Night” of darkness navigating the challenges of isolation and the fact that their nearest neighbors were polar bears. They had over 53 Polar bear encounters that winter. They were the first women in recorded history to overwinter in the Arctic (without men).
They are not heroines but they are concerned citizens who believe that we all have the power to make some contribution to the planet that is in dire need of all us to engage and understand what is happening to the ecosystem and our resources.
