There's much debate on the causes of climate change. Scientists, politicians and opinion leaders all take the stage to present their vision or ideas. However, cool(E)motion is not focused on the possible causes of climate change. We merely note that the climate is changing, whatever the cause. Let's now focus on what this means for the Arctic. And more specifically, what will happen to traditional culture, when hunters can't trust the ice, when seals disappear and wheater condition deteriorate?

Cool(e)motion urges those in power to focus on the cultural effects of climate changes. We seek attention for this message by creating giant sculptures on ice bergs that will float when spring comes. This way, the sculptural 'hunters' can search for new hunting grounds for people in the Arctic.

COP15 impressions

cool(E)motion was represented on COP15, by Ap Verheggen, Ole Jorgen Hammeken. (CE Greenland) & Jaap Feil (CE Ambassador)
A very succesfull 4 days of lobbying, discussions with NGO's, governments and journalists! We got some enthusiastic response after our presentation in the WWF tent and met some great people from all around the world. It was great that WWF also supported the presentation of ManyStrongVoices. Children from around the Arctic Circle were invited by this great organisation to tell their stories! We offered the kids NRGsociety glasses , as a rememberance for their participation in COP15.
