Clip summary

More than most people, polar explorer and educator Will Steger has seen and felt the effects of climate change in his both his life and work: his past polar expeditions have been rendered unrepeatable due to melting ice caps fueled by climate change. In response to this, Steger founded Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy in 2006, and he has dedicated his life to educating youth and the public about climate change, as well as advocating for solutions. During a spring visit to Expo Elementary in St. Paul, Steger shared stories of climate change and his Arctic expeditions with students, and encouraged them to journal about the changes they’re seeing in the world around them.
