Send Ishani to Antarctica | Support Climate Action

Why fundraise me:

Hello Kind Souls! 

While acquiring new degrees are feathers on the hat for most people, for me, it has been exemplary travel and environmental experiences. One of which I can have if you support me! I have been selected from among hundreds of applicants to be part of an 100-person team journeying to Antarctica in March 2022! The 2041 ClimateForce Antarctic Expedition is a unique 12-day educational journey by ship to ‘the Last Great Wilderness on Earth,’ led by polar explorer and sustainability champion Robert Swan O.B.E. - the first person in history to trek to both of Earth’s poles.  

This expedition is educational, scientific, and crucial in understanding climate science and future projections. Therefore, here I am asking for your help in sending me to Antarctica and enabling me to take various climate actions!

Why fund me?

  • Because I have felt Climate Change. Between 2015 - 2018, I witnessed snow cycles alter in the northern Himalayas and last year, I lost my battle to Delhi's air pollution with allergic asthma. My experiences have driven my career and my career drives solutions for climate action.
  • I am equipped with resources and network that will further foster awareness and action on Antarctic conservation with my Master's in Environmental Management at Duke University
  • Because I multiply what I learn by engaging hundreds of more people. Being a part of active youth and professional networks helps in multiplying my learning with my fellows and even engaging more people in the process
  • Post expedition, I will also become an Antarctica Ambassador and will be able to help thousands of individuals contribute towards Antarctica Conservation and combat climate change through collective efforts.

How can you help me?

This experience is once in a lifetime opportunity and something I have always dreamed of being a part of. The program costs are high, and I am required to raise up to Rs. 15,00,000 that will include program fees, flights, visa, and other miscellaneous costs.

There is no minimum or maximum amount please contribute the maximum amount possible! Every penny from your contributions will count. Also, the target amount of the expedition will keep reducing if I attain funds from other sponsorships and all donors will be communicated of the same.

Every donor will receive a customized digital note from me with the pictures that I will bring from Antarctica.

Thank you in advance for your time and investment!
