photos of Sunniva and Hilde on expeditionsSunniva Sorby and Hilde Fålun Strøm are two women who have taken climate change to heart and are embarking on a nine-month venture, Hearts in the Ice, to survey rapid climate change escalation in Svalbard, Norway. From September 2019 to May 2020 they will live in a remote trapper cabin called Bamsebu to conduct observations and gather data in association with the Norwegian Polar Institute, The Norwegian Meteorological Institute, NASA, and The Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Their goal is to launch global dialogue and social engagement around climate change in the Polar Regions.
