In November 2019 we will be heading for our first expedition, in Colombia! The country is home to 71 glaciers spread across 6 mountain ranges. These glaciers are forecast to disappear in the next 30 years, the clock is ticking.
But Colombia is lucky! Some great people have started a project that aims to raise awareness on their last glaciers: Cumbres Blancas Colombia. This project was started by Marcela Fernandez, a digital nomad. I strongly believe that scientists should really look into what Cumbres Blancas is doing in terms of communication and work with the local populations to understand how such projects can make a huge difference! We are very excited to take part in Cumbres Blancas and spend time with their members.
Here are some of the mountains we will try to explore!
