Overview

Cape Farewell, an innovative program designed to raise awareness of climate change, is the brainchild of British artist David Buckland and is supported by the British Council Canada - the United Kingdom's international organization to promote education and cultural relations.
 
Cape Farewell's sixth voyage (September 2008) is the first to originate in Canada. Its expedition includes Canadian youth from high schools representing every province and territory in Canada, as well as a number of international youth. This fine group of youth voyagers includes our very own Belmont student - Lily J.!
