Invitation to live stream: Join us online for the Ice Worlds Festival of Polar Science

Sweco is delighted to join our Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme (AIMP) partners in sponsoring the British Antarctic Survey and UKRI’s three-day Ice Worlds Festival of Polar Science which will be held at Royal Museums Greenwich, London from 28-30 October. 

On the eve of the  COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, this festival will highlight how polar environmental science, engineering and technology can improve our understanding of the impacts of climate change, learn why want happens in the polar regions affects us all, and explore what can be done to make things better.

The event will feature:

  • Live talks and virtual tours of the RRS Sir David Attenborough, the UK’s newest polar research ship (invite only)
  • An industry business breakfast which will look at how the industry can deliver a net zero and climate resilient future. invite only)
  • Ice Worlds – meet polar scientists and experts in the National Maritime Museum and learn what it’s like to work in the polar regions. (free ticketed event)
  • Explore what it really means to do extreme polar science and engineering.

As an AIMP partner, Sweco will join BAM, Ramboll and Hugh Broughton Architects, in showcasing how we are working together to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of climate, biodiversity and ocean research in Antarctic. This partnership is not only securing the future for our scientists to continue their vital climate change research but is also a model for how industry can deliver a net zero future.

New polar research ship makes its London debut

The RRS Sir David Attenborough will also be making a special visit to London ahead of its maiden voyage to Antarctica later in the year. On Thursday 28 October from 2.00-3.00pm, a special live virtual tour of this amazing state-of-the-art ship will take place.  The tour will show how the ship’s science missions will help us live with and adapt to climate change.
