Lewis Pugh begins his swim across the 10-kilometer mouth of the Ilulissat Icefjord in Greenland to highlight the speed of the Climate Crisis ahead of the UN Climate Conference (Cop26) in Glasgow, where Pugh will address world leaders and demand urgent action.
The Ilulissat Icefjord is fed by the worldâ€™s fastest-moving glacier â€“ moving at an average of 30 meters per day.
The Ilulissat Glacier carves icebergs over 1 km tall.
Pugh’s attempt will be the world’s first multi-day swim in the Polar regions.
