Last Days of the Arctic
Project info

Ragnar has been traveling to the Arctic for almost three decades. Nowhere are the signs of climate change more visible; here global warming already affects the day-to-day lives of the local people. Still the circumpolar Arctic is one of the most disputed territories on Earth, with many nations laying claim to the mining and oil rights of the area as the sea ice retreats.

For thousands of years the Inuit have built their communities based upon a sensitive understanding of the land and the frozen ocean, but rapid social and environmental change threaten their traditional way of life. The hunters of the North are a dying breed. This is the twilight of their society.
