We Are Antarctica: An Audio Journey
Show Notes

Join Shivi on a 10 minute meditative escape to Antarctica.

Explore the icy expanse of Antarctica as you cross the dangerous Drake Passage, speed across the water’s surface, step onto the ice, and get up close with whales, seals, and penguins.

Immerse yourself in Antarctica and come away with an understanding of why this precious ecosystem needs protecting, and how you are more connected than you might first think.

We Are Antarctica is a campaign developed by Reboot the Future and Earthrise Studio which inspires new relationships with Antarctica and the wider natural world; creating connection to inspire action. Visit the Campaign Hub to find out more.

Building on the campaign, this immersive audio experience was created in collaboration with Twenty Twenty Studios and layers in sounds recorded onsite in Antarctica by Anna Palmer. Shivi Dwivedi (Youth Engagement Lead for the Climate Champions Team for COP26 and COP27) narrates her journey to Antarctica in March 2022 as part of a 2041 Foundation expedition.

Shivi is deeply passionate about driving sustainable and ethical change. She currently leads the youth engagement strategy for the U.N. Climate Change High-Level Champions for COP26 and COP27. In this role, she focuses on the delivery of a mandate to enhance ambition and strengthen the engagement of non state actors — especially youth — in supporting parties and working with the Marrakech Partnership to deliver the goals of the Paris Agreement. In March 2022 Shivi undertook an expedition to Antarctica as part of her personal climate journey.

In addition to seeing herself as a lifelong dreamer, and a struggling pianist, Shivi loves travelling, reading, exploring underwater life, and animals. She dreams of opening an animal shelter with her partner one day!
