Celebrating 10 Years of Climate Action December 1
Celebrating 10 Years of Climate Action will take place at 5:30 p.m., on December 1, at Nicollet Island Pavilion, beginning with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by dinner, music and dancing. Guest speakers include Kathy Jetn̄il-Kijiner, Dessa and Will Steger.
Steger is the founder of Climate Generation which educates and empowers people to engage in solutions to climate change. He is best known for his legendary polar explorations, and has traveled tens of thousands of miles by kayak and dogsled over the course of 50 years, leading teams on some of the most significant polar expeditions in history.
In 1986, Steger led the first confirmed dogsled journey to the North Pole without resupply; in 1988, he undertook the 1,600-mile south-north traverse of Greenland (longest unsupported dogsled expedition in history), and from 1989-90, the first dogsled traverse of Antarctica (the historic seven month, 3,741-mile International Trans-Antarctica Expedition).
Cost: $125. Location: 40 Power St., Minneapolis. ClimateGen.org.
