Sagax Expeditions, in association with Green Cross, is organizing a 3-year program of theme-centered expeditions involving young people in the arctic and in the sub-arctic regions. The first modular mission will begin July 6 - early August 2008. The main objective is to bring six children to the Arctic to participate in data gathering for scientific projects linked to five 5 broad themes: climate, mineral resources including oil, transportation, culture and biodiversity. We will be traveling through the Northwest passage, the magnetic North pole region and within various pockets of Inuit communities.

Just as in 1990 when Captain Cousteau traveled to Antarctica with six children to claim the land of ice for future generations. Today we will prove once again that young people can join together and commit themselves to the peace and the protection of the Arctic for the future. The Pax Arctica Initiative will convey a political, philosophical and ethical message for the regulation of the potential exploitation of mineral resources in the Arctic. Our goal is to protect the safety of its exceptional and fragile environment and help guarantee its viability as a home to local populations.

Pax Arctica is a three year strategic initiative designed to alert public opinion of critical environmental issues that endanger the Artic region. Luc Hardy and Sebastien Copeland will lead a unique consortium of environmental advocates and ecological scientists - with the support of corporate sponsors and individuals - to explore and assess the conditions of the region an determine steps required to guarantee its preservation for generations to come.
