With a mission to spread awareness about global warming, an Indian man in Oman took up the challenge to go on an expedition to Antarctica even though he did not have enough financial backing.
Julius Caesar, an engineer by profession, was among 55 participants from different parts of the world during the two-week long expedition called Antarctic Youth Ambassador Programme (AYAP) on global warming and climate change and effects of greenhouse gases.
“Right from my childhood, I have been concerned about the degeneration of the fragile eco system. But lack of enough funds was hindering my plans. Recognising my commitment, the IAE organisers loaned me the funds I lacked and allowed me to join the team,” Caesar told the newspaper.

He represented both India and Oman during the expedition. “Even though my company provided me with a good amount, I did not have enough money for the expedition. I approached many people but they were reluctant to help. So, as the day approached when I was to confirm my participation, I made a daring move to collect money,” he said.
“The day before I was to confirm my participation, I came to Ruwi and visited each and every shop to collect some money. Some good people trusted me and gave me money.” Caesar stayed in Antarctica for six days between March 8 and 21 and received training on global warming, climate change and effects of greenhouse gases, etc.
