Forwarding On Info About a Climate Change Photo Exhibition

Call for Submissions for two photo exhibitions
2degreesC is developing two very cool photo exhibitions - one called Poles Apart || Pulling Together that connects and celebrates polar science contributions to society, and a second that tells a powerful story of youth engagement on climate change.

  • Poles Apart || Pulling Together. Check out the Call for Submissions at

       http://www.2degreesC.com/Files/Poles_apart-call_for_submissions.pdf.  Deadline: October 10. Awesome to be working with ANDRILL, International Polar Year, and Cape Farewell on this.

  • Youth engagement - we are looking for any great images that showcase the ways that young people are engaging on and contributing to the big collective effort to resolve the climate crisis.

In short, we want great photos. The same photos in the Youth exhibition could be considered in the Poles Apart exhibition, most likely under the fourth theme of Global Citizenship.

Climate Change Symposium in Regina

Adaptation to Climate Change in the Canadian Plains

April 22, 2008

Travelodge Hotel, Regina SK

The semi-arid Palliser Triangle in the southern portion of the Prairie

provinces is second only to the Arctic in terms of its vulnerability to

climate change in Canada. While public awareness about climate

change is becoming mainstream, this unique patch of land seems to get

lost in the discussions. Public policy to address adaptation to climate

change will be a critical element in determining our success or

failure as human societies. As such, this symposium will present!

information and analysis on adaptation to climate change in a

policy-relevant and accessible manner for a Saskatchewan audience.

Elaine Wheaton
