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.

Last update from Netherlands

Today we start our trip to Uummannaq, Greenland. Tonight Copenhagen, tomorrow Ilulisat , and one day later by helicopter to Uummannaq, the most beautifil island in the world. Great to meet Ole Jorgen and Ann again! Let's start the adventure. I can't wait anymore.
Many thanks to the great team of Datema & NMTshipping, who work as hell to get all problems fixed. Problems? Believe me: In a project with this dimension, you have to think in solutions.
