Here’s something cool for people to try.

The Mighty Rovers – Arctic Expedition 2011 is a joint project between The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education, Yan Oi Tong and Hong Kong Discover. The project is open to full time Hong Kong students who are 15 or above on 1 Jan 2011. The program wil involve 12 students who will take the trip to the Artic, but also include 100 ‘Polar Conservation Ambassadors’ who are expected to support protection activites. As an environmental program, the project is looking for students keen to protect the environment, with a good physical fitness, quite understandable since theyre going to be going accross the Artic. The finaly requirement, which also removes me from the equation (not that I can really attend being in the UK and all) is that you need to have good Chinese and English standards. This means students studying in F.4-6 in the 2011/12 academic year are all eligible.

Applications are open from now till April 12th which will include an enviornmental plan. The 100 ‘Polar Conservation Ambassadors’ are selected in April after which there will be 3 training days. The final 12 are selected in July for the 14 day expedition tentatively August 25, 2011 – September 7, 2011.
