Arctic Youth

Arctic Youth is a mini-series film project, spread across 8 countries located above the Arctic Circle: Greenland, Canada, USA, Russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.


Teenagers and young adults who live in the Arctic will be invited onboard some of the best expedition sailing yachts in the world, and provided with opportunities to explore their countries, and understand better the importance of preserving the Arctic nature. They will also learn about good seamanship in polar waters.

Arctic Yachts will organize 9 expeditions and invite the Youth from the Arctic communities to participate free of charge.  They will explore their own land and sea, but also far away territories, as the final trip will be in Svalbard – a treaty country – with mixed crew of one representative of each of 8 countries.

Participants will be selected during an open contest, via submitting 1 minute videos where they explain why Arctic nature is important to them and why we should preserve it. The only criteria to enter the contest is a proof of residence within the Arctic Circle, and age: 18-24 years old.

Public will vote for their favorite videos, and the top 10 (of each of 8 countries) with highest number of votes will be interviewed by the director and expedition leader, who will select the 6 participants for the expedition in their home country, and 1 for the final expedition in Svalbard.

During the expeditions, our main focus is on:

  • respecting and admiring the Arctic nature

  • understanding the climate change and its impact on the Arctic

  • understanding the importance of waste management and leaving minimum footprint

  • brainstorming solutions for the sustainable tourism

  • educating the Youth about safe operation of boats in polar waters

  • sharing our passion for expedition sailing and encouraging youths to pursue their dreams

Arctic Yachts is fully committed to Arctic Youth Project. We are the main producer, coordinate financing of the project, make the best of our network to run and promote it, and dedicate countless hours to create ROI to the Investors, but above all create a beautiful human experience for everyone involved, with very strong focus on social and environmental values. Naturally we also do the actual sailing, and share our passion with the next generation.

Once all 9 trips are completed, we will release the mini-series on one of the leading VOD platforms.
