An Argentinian in Antarctica

Evguenia Alechine is an Argentine scientist who participates in the largest women's expedition in history to reach Antarctica.

Argentines around the world

 Evguenia Alechine  embarked on an unprecedented experience: she is the only Argentine representative among 100 women  participating in an expedition to Antarctica  . It is part of a project that aims to form a  network of leaders  working for the common good and for a more  sustainable  future.

 Evgenia Alechine  was born in Russia, but at the age of five she emigrated to Buenos Aires with her parents. However,  she declares herself Argentinian . Formed entirely in our public education, she is  a PhD in Biochemistry, researcher and scientific communicator.  His job is to translate scientific language into one that the general public can understand.

Long ago, she ran for the   Homeward Bound  , a global leadership program for women in    science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine  (STEMM). It aims to form leaders in the face of the  climate crisis  we face. Evguenia did not have too many expectations of being selected. But the program managers valued her experience and called her.  Today, he is living an experience that will be unrepeatable in his life.  

That was how he embarked, along with 99 other women from  33 countries,  on this expedition to  Antarctica  , one of the regions of the world most vulnerable to  climate change.  For three weeks, they receive intense training in leadership, visibility, communication and problem solving. In addition, they conduct sighting of Antarctic flora and fauna and visits to scientific bases.

The program's motto is “Mother Nature Needs Her Daughters ”: that's how 100 of these daughters are today carrying the flag of that much-needed transformation, becoming leaders who will put everything of them to make the world a better place.
