I.C.E. 2018

I.C.E. 2018

Last year, the international youth camp “Ice Climate Education”celebrated a small jubilee. The six-day journey on the Baltic Sea was the tenth such camp since the first camp for young people from over the world took place in 2007. Before the ten participants of the eleventh camp come together in July, the foundation in.media.vitae, from Iris and Alexander Hofmann, took over the “ICE-Camp” as a foundation project. Arved Fuchs and his team will, however, carry on with this project with regards to both content and operation.

As in the previousyear, the camp will take place this summer on board the “Ryvar” and will sail across the Danish Southern Seas. Starting at the Kiel Harbor, they will sail to Samsö and back to Flensburg. Altogether the ICE-Team will welcome ten participants on board the former herring-drifter. A secondary school in Nuremberg is involved for the first time. As in the previous years, the young people from different schools could qualify for the camp through a competition. The best projects from these schools were then rewarded with the participation to this year’s camp.

Once again a group of ten participants will travel to Kiel and sail, from the 4th to the 14th of July, on board the “Ryvar” across the Danish Southern Seas.

The Participants 2018:

  • Tabea Dix - Neues Gymnasium Nürnberg (Germany)
  • Pia Brombach - Gymnasium Westerland (Germany)
  • Jael Ketteler - Gymnasium Westerland (Germany)
  • Kärt Soiewa - Miina Härma Gymnasium Tartu (Estonia)
  • Oliver Oll - Miina Härma Gymnasium Tartu (Estonia)
  • Paula Erlacher - Sprachen- und Realgymnasium Bruneck (Italy)
  • Carole Berens - Athénée de Luxembourg (Luxembourg)
  • Michel Thimmesch - Athénée de Luxembourg (Luxembourg)
  • Xjuscha Antz - Schloss Bieberstein Hofbieber (Germany)
  • Lara Kindermann - Schloss Bieberstein Hofbieber (Germany)

The camp will begin in the Kiel Harbor with stops at Marstal and Kerteminde on the way to Samsö and then to Middelfart and back to Flensburg, where this year’s camp will then end. Besides a simulation game, there will be numerous speeches held by researchers on the themes of plastic waste, the fishing industry in the Baltic Sea, or on climate change in general. We are looking forward to greeting researchers from the Max-Planck- Institute in Hamburg, from the Thünen-Institute in Rostock, from the Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde and from Geomar Kiel on board.
