Earlier this year Javier Bardem, an Antarctic Ambassador with Greenpeace, dived in a two-person submarine to the seabed of the Antarctic Ocean. On July 10, he met Environment Secretary Michael Gove and joined a panel discussion at Greenpeace’s immersive Antarctic 360° geo-dome to discuss the global campaign to create a 1.8 million square kilometre Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary. Here are a few impressions from the event and the campaign:

Javier Bardem is pictured in the visually stunning geo-dome, constructed in a park in the centre of Cambridge, with projection-mapped photo and 360 video from Greenpeace’s recent expedition to the Antarctic. The event was timed to coincide with a meeting of Antarctic scientists in Cambridge, who are discussing technical plans about marine protection in the Antarctic.
Greenpeace’s immersive Antarctic 360° geo-dome was open to the public for a week.
