Project Aurora - a Journey to Save the Arctic

A group of young people has just returned from the North Pole, where they went to declare it protected on behalf of all life on Earth. Backed by millions, they planted a flag for the future on the seabed and called for a sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the pole.
