Our contribution – shaping the future of our planet
With crisis comes the opportunity for change
Hearts in the Ice is a platform for social engagement in the dialogue around climate change.
Created by Hilde Fålun Strøm & Sunniva Sorby, HITI promotes conversation on issues relating to adventure, female leadership, STEMM, sustainability, innovation, exploration, diversity, climate action, alternative energy & pushing boundaries.
Bamsebu is a 9-month overwintering project in the High Arctic of Svalbard, Norway where from August 2019 – May 2020, Hilde (Norway) & Sunniva (Canada) inhabited a 20sq.m trappers cabin “Bamsebu”.
However as a result of COVID-19 their pickup was cancelled so Hilde & Sunniva are using their continued isolation to highlight the power of connectivity between people & the natural world.
Working closely with Strategy Together
Strategy Together has worked closely with Hilde & Sunniva to enhance their leadership & strategic capabilities to align & amplify their voices in the global conversation on climate change.
We used the strategy map to map out HITI’s objectives to achieve the vision and ambitions, and deliver on stakeholder expectations aligned to purpose.
We used three themes to describe the strategy; firstly, how our experience educates and inspires others, secondly, how the visibility we create around our citizen science projects contributes to the call to action on climate change, thirdly, how we can use HITI to extend our influence and impact beyond Bamsebu, and finally what resource we need to enable us to be successful in our endeavour.
We use the strategy map as our compass to keep moving in the right direction, and as a planning tool to keep us focused on making the right strategic choices.
When we set sail on this ground breaking leadership initiative in 2016 on board the MV Ushuaia with 78 women and a documentary film crew, I had little idea of the extraordinary voyage of self discovery that we had embarked upon and that lay ahead of us, and the impact that Fabian’s ten year vision would have in the world today.
The experience of this first Homeward Bound cohort lay the foundations for the future years and from this pilot we were able to learn and improve the programme, and further develop as leaders.
Strategy Together is a major contributor to Homeward Bound a ground-breaking leadership initiative, set against the backdrop of an Antarctic expedition.
Over a 10 year period Homeward Bound is creating a global collaboration of 1,000 women with STEMM backgrounds and better equipping them to lead, influence & shape the future of our planet.
