Science & technology
Co-hosted by the Royal Danish Library and the NAC Orchestra as part of the SPHERE Festival, Arctic Imagination is a not-to-be-missed speaker series pressing discussions on the transformation of the Arctic as the ice disappears — and the implications of climate change for geopolitics and human civilization as we know it. Speakers: Dorthe Dahl-Jensen Dr. Dorthe Dahl Jensen is a legend in glaciology and scientific expeditions on the Greenland ice sheet. Living up to the motto that researchers must be where the changes are happening in order to achieve reliable results, Dorthe has worked in Greenland for years—and with her large research team, has tried to answer one of the most important questions of our time: how fast does the ice melt? Ray Zahab Ray Zahab is a Canadian Explorer, ultra distance runner and Founder of non-profit impossible2Possible. A recent recipient of the Meritorious Service Cross of Canada, Ray is an Explorer in Residence of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. In 2015 Canadian Geographic recognized Ray as one of Canada’s Top Explorers. He has ran 17,000+km across the world’s deserts, and unsupported expeditions in some of the coldest places on the planet.
