Donate to Heïdi - A Glaciologist Protecting Glaciers

Donate now to protect glaciers 


This is Heïdi

Heïdi is a Glaciologist set out to complete the first ever carbon-neutral science expedition in the Arctic and gather invaluable information on micro-particles. This could be a key in stopping glaciers from further melting and sea levels from rising. Heïdi advises governments all over the world on questions regarding glaciers and climate change and is also researching tropical glaciers.

With your help

Heïdi will not only be able to complete her groundbreaking expedition and conduct research but also further educate politicians to take vital decisions to stop global warming.

Why care

Currently, 99.9 % of all glaciers are melting, contributing to a significant threat – sea level rise. Over 700 million people will be directly affected by this. Indirectly, massive streams of refugees will increase population density, diseases and conflict dramatically.
