Meet the Team

GoNorth! is all about team work.

On these pages you can meet the team members who will be traveling on the expedition trail to Greenland.

Mille will be traveling the full route of this adventure learning expedition, setting out with Christine to the most northern communities in the world from where Christine will continue on to the two southern communities, all to work with youth during her extended stays. Aaron and Brant will be part of the first and most challenging leg of the journey with Polar Huskies up onto Greenland's massive ice sheet and onwards to the first research station, NEEM; while Andrea will be along with Mille for the entire journey on the ice cap onwards to Summit.

without whom there would
be no program!


...And keep in mind, the adventure learning program involves the skills and dedication of all members of Team GoNorth! And team members are by no means just the people on the trail.

That includes both Education and Expedition Basecamp managed by Tiffany Simonsen, and the many people that work tirelessly behind the scenes; those that support the program helping out with specific tasks from movie and map makers to 'Polar Husky sitters, supporting administrators and government agencies, the incredible GoNorth! teachers -- and not least students and teachers around the world taking part in the program.

Together, we all make it happen! Thank you!
