Robert Davies, President and Chair of the Board of Environmental Defence and Principal of Toronto-based Montgomery Sisam Architects, will be joining the 2010 Cape Farewell Arctic Expedition, boarding the Noorderlicht on September 10th for a 22 day journey to Svalbard in the Greenland Sea.
Founded in the UK by artist David Buckland, Cape Farewell pioneers the cultural response to climate change, leading a series of expeditions into the Arctic that combine science, art and education.  This year Robert will be joining an international group of writers, artists and scientists brought together to stimulate the production of art and dialogue founded in scientific research. Cape Farewell is widely acknowledged to be the most significant sustained artistic response to climate change anywhere in the world.  Progress of the expedition can be followed at
