SOI video for International Year of Youth

2010 is soon history. It has been an amazing year for me in so many ways, but the one thing that above all others defined 2010 for me was going to the Arctic with Studens On Ice. I learned so much, met so many wonderful and talented people, experienced climate change first hand and maybe most importantly: I understood, not only in theory but also in practice why we need to protect the planet.

This year has also been The International Year of Youth. IYY have three main goals:
1. Create Awareness: increase commitment and investment in youth
2. Mobilize and Engage: increase youth participation and partnerships
3. Connect and Build Bridges: increase intercultural understanding among youth

In August, during the expedition we marked the beginning of IYY by making this video. Enjoy:
