Project goals
Our Polar Heritage aims to raise a transversal photographic view of the importance of the scientific research driven in the Arctic and the Antarctic. Our polar Heritage wants to be a strong and revealing message in direct link with the environmental questions concerning tomorrow’s strategic choices as man’s future in his environment, as knowledge of the environmental heritage, as protection of the biodiversity. Our Polar heritage goal is to give more awareness to the general public, to the younger and to the older, to the decision makers, to the future researchers of the societal interest of leading scientific works in polar regions.
