Circumnavigating the globe
In August 2021 the Norwegian tall ship Statsraad Lehmkuhl sets sail for The One Ocean Expedition, a circumnavigation of the globe. For nineteen months, Statsraad Lehmkuhl will sail 55 000 nautical miles and visit 36 ports worldwide as a part of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Our goal is to create awareness and share knowledge about the sea’s crucial role for a sustainable future. The expedition will include researchers from the University of Bergen and their students who will stop at multiple ports to share their experience with partner universities they meet along the voyage.
