I am Srishti and I am the only Indian writer selected for an expedition to Antarctica for sustainable change! Ask me anything about my mission and fundraising campaign.
This project is my attempt to raise funds to join an expedition to Antarctica for understanding the effects of climate change first hand by witnessing the pristine wilderness on Earth, Antarctica, and to be trained in sustainable ways of living and interacting with the ecosystem. This expedition is organised by 2041 Foundation under the leadership of Sir. Robert Swan, the only man to have walke don both North and South poles.
About Antarctica and the Antarctic Treaty Antarctica is such a hopeful place. It is protected by the Antarctic treaty, signed in 1959. In 1991, a 50-year agreement was entered into that stops any exploitation in Antarctica. And this agreement could be altered, changed, modified, and even abandoned starting in the year 2041.
I plan to write a book after I come back from the expedition, a book on climate change that uses methods of 'feminist historigraphy' viz to talk about climate change from the lens of stories and not numbers and carbon taxes in order to build direct connection with readers. I believe that people do not think in terms of numbers, rather they connect with stories!
