A Dinner With the Amundsen
On the occasion of the scientific, cultural and artistic event Décoder le monde [Decode the World] held last March 19 at the Musée de la civilisation, in Québec, the public was invited to participate in a dinner with the Amundsen.
During this conference dinner held in the Museum's restaurant, 60 people had the chance to enjoy their meal in the company of the crew members and scientists who work aboard the CCGS Amundsen.
A fifteen-minute facilitator-led discussion preceded each of the four courses. Commanding Officer Alain Gariépy and Chief Officer Jean Gaumond delighted the audience with a portrayal of life on board—and below! Participants listened very attentively and were fascinated by guest speakers who enthusiastically depicted in detail the preparation and navigation work done aboard Canadian Coast Guard icebreakers.
This was the second edition of the event Décoder le monde [Decode the World], whose theme this year was nordicity.
