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.

CE team arrived in IIulissat

After a long trip we arrived yesterday in Ilulisat, and walked to the icefjord. Everybody was overwhelmed by the impressive size of icebergs, as big as complete city blocks. For Jan and Patrick their first Arctic experience. They couldn' t speak anymore as impressed they were.
Later in the hotel we caught ap with Dave Conover, from the Clearwater Foundation, Hudson river, who arranges later next week the skype contact with Pete Seeger. We have had an exciting day, followed by a short evening.
Today we fly over to Uummannaq, where our real adventure starts.
keep you posted,
