Who we are
Cape Farewell employs artists and creative thinkers at its operational core. We employ people who are prepared for no one day to be the same as the next, but who are also able to help develop and drive a strategy allowing us to manage a wide range of activities in a sustainable and effective way. We think this equips us in the right way to tackle climate change.
We operate as a small team at the centre of a large amount of activity, working closely with a wide range of partners and collaborators. We are regulated on a quarterly basis by our board of trustees.

"As political and cultural awareness of climate change grows, the reading, meaning and value of the Cape Farewell voyages will also develop. I hope to return from the trip with an enhanced understanding of the Arctic as a system, and with an increased ability to speak about the impacts of climate change."
