Screening of The Pursuit of Endurance at COP22 in Marrakesh

With the impact of climate change intensifying, Antarctic conditions are changing rapidly. The consequences will severely affect this fragile ecosystem.
Venture Capitalist, Philanthropist, Adventurer and Green Cross France & Territories Board Member Luc Hardy launched a voyage to the Antarctic in 2014, to commemorate the centennial of the epic Ernest Shackleton expedition in 1914. Hardy and his team, including world-class athletes and explorers, traveled south to observe, record, and document the Antarctic’s unique natural environment, the changes it has undergone, and the threats to its future. This film follows their experience.
