How Six Women Did Something Incredible to Save the Arctic

Victoria Henry

Since the six of us climbed the Shard, many people have asked: how did we do it? How much training did it take? How did we go to the toilet? 

Now I can show you. Watch the behind-the-scenes film of our climb.

It captures the planning, training and (I’m not afraid to admit it) nerves, but also thedetermination all of us felt. There’s nothing about going to the toilet though. We kept that out for modesty’s sake!

I was overwhelmed by the support we got during the climb, but it’s going to take much more than six women climbing a skyscraper to stop Shell.  

We know that in order to keep the Arctic out of the hands of Shell, we need to buildshard climb the biggest movement of people the world has ever seen - and you are part of that.

I need your to help inspire others to join the movement. By sharing this video and telling others why you felt inspired to join, you can make it bigger and stronger. 

 Like climbing the Shard, saving the Arctic is going to be an immense struggle. It will take every bit of strength and dedication we have, and we will be exhausted by the end. 

But when we win - and we will win - we will have achieved something incredible.

Thanks for being part of the movement,
