IIIEE alumna Niina Kautto soon on her way to Antarctica.

Former IIIEE PhD student Niina Kautto has been selected as one of 78 women travelling to Antarctica soon as part of a new leadership programme called Homeward Bound. It is a state-of-the-art leadership and strategic initiative that aims to amplify the influence and impact of women with science backgrounds to lead the world towards a more sustainable future. This year-long programme culminates in a 20-day expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula in December and is the start of a ten-year outreach initiative to build a network of 1,000 women in science.

Niina is currently raising funds to partly cover the costs of her participation, which amount to ~18000 €. If you would like to support her and fund a tiny bit of her voyage, you can get a postcard from the world's most southerly post office (20 €) or other rewards in exchange for a donation through her crowdfunding page (it is a Finnish platform so amounts are in euros).

In addition to monetary contribution, you can join Niina by following her journey and spreading the message. A short video explaining the gist of the campaign can be seen here: 

Niina is also on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
