Geir Kløver (Norway)
This autumn’s first Maritime Forum will be about the heritage of Scott and Amundsen and their role in the Antarctic exploration that followed.
Geir Kløver is the Director of Fram Museum. He has also been the editor of many books on Norwegian polar expeditions, including the personal diaries of members of Roald Amundsen’s expedition for conquering the South Pole. Moreover, he has provided media and communication advice to Nobel prize winners.
This Maritime Forum will be in English.
The Maritime Forums are free for everyone. The forum will begin at 18.00 and we shall meet shortly before it near the Desk at the Seaplane Harbour.
On 28 January, Eesti Post presented the postage stamp block ‘Discovery of Antarctica 200. Estonian–Russian joint issue’ at the Seaplane Harbour.
