The Meet an Innovator program series brings together TELUS Spark visitors and incredible people in our community who are creatively solving problems. From renowned artists to scientist and expedition leaders, these individuals inspire us and we know that they’ll have you pondering new ideas too!
On December 27, 2014, expedition leader Susan R. Eaton and some of her team members will address the TELUS Spark audience with tales of the 2014 proof-of-concept expedition to Labrador and Greenland, and a discussion of the snorkel relay of the Northwest Passage in 2016.
Below is the description of Susan’s upcoming presentation from Telus SPARK.
“Hypothermia, gale force winds, and an array of marine life including polar bears and Greenland sharks are just a few of the challenges that Susan R. Eaton, founder of the 2014-2016 Sedna Epic Expedition, may encounter as she leads a ten-woman snorkel relay of the Northwest Passage. Team Sedna, named after the Inuit goddess of marine mammals, will embark on a 100-day, 3,000-kilometre snorkel relay to document ocean change and its impact on northern communities. Before they begin their epic journey, Susan and some of her team will visit TELUS Spark to share their stories.”
