Felicity Aston | Polar Exposure
THURSDAY 01 JANUARY - 12:00 AM
THE WOMEN’S EURO-ARABIAN NORTH POLE EXPEDITION
British polar explorer Felicity Aston MBE is an Antarctic scientist turned author, speaker and expedition leader. In 2012 she became the first woman to ski alone across Antarctica.
Tonight she shares tales from her 2018 adventure when, facing extreme temperatures, a constantly shifting landscape and the threat from predatory polar bears, she and a team of ten novices from across Europe and the Middle East skied across the frozen Arctic Ocean to the North Pole. The core purpose of the expedition was to foster greater dialogue and understanding between women from Western and Arabian cultures – but it also inspired many women to reach beyond the expectation of others to fulfil their own ultimate life ambitions.
