History is made by brave people facing the struggles of their time. Every nation has its history and their leaders can benefit from the lessons learned to lead their nations into a better future.

For this reason the expedition team approached all nations and their leaders that were involved in the ARCTIC BATTLE asking for their support . In doing so the Expedition is creating a network that helps bring nations together and establish diplomatic relations to commemorate the hardships of the ARCTIC CONVOYS.

In addition to that Expedition ARCTIC OCEAN RAPTOR provides a platform of intercultural and interdisciplinary exchange for Arctic Enthusiasts such as Historians, Environmental Scientists, Sailors, NGO’s, Navies, Associations or just out of personal interest.
