Beyond methodology, data and technical work, expeditions are made of stories and places. Waiting for all elements to come together in the overall scene, NANUQ2020 has already pictures to share, each one being part of a story to tell. Scientific work from the expedition will be presented in specialized journals and public events. Nevertheless, a socially shared, widespread awareness of the need for a responsible approach towards the environment can also be supported by one’s ability to look and get a grasp of what’s at stake. Sometimes, much of what we understand comes from what we feel. These first days of NANUQ2020 have already provided scenes and moments worth telling, and we’ll let a few pictures do the job.
