Marc Cornelissen & Philip de Roo
Our good friends, polar explorers and climate change campaigners, Marc and Philip are missing, presumed drowned on their latest mission to measure the disappearance of Arctic sea-ice. We are deeply saddened by this news and our thoughts are with their families and friends at this sad time. Marc’s passion for saving the Arctic and inspiring environmental entrepreneurship is what led us to team up with WWF to launch the Ben & Jerry’s Climate Change College back in 2007. Under Marc and Philip’s expert guidance 20 students were led through a polar expedition to witness the impact of climate change first hand and then came back to launch their own campaigns and businesses to combat climate change. We’re proud that so many of those students continue committed to the cause, and that Marc and Philip’s legacy will live on through them.
Peace & love.
