Introducing the UN International Year of Glaciers’ Preservation: The state and fate of Canada’s snow and ice | Free webinar

March 21 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Snow and ice are a part of the Canadian identity. We need to protect them. Learn what’s being done at this free webinar on March 21.

Hosted on the soon-to-be World Day for Glaciers (March 21), this event will introduce Canada’s contribution to the United Nations’ International Year of Glaciers’ Preservation (UN IYGP.)

Learn how snow, ice and resulting water conditions are changing in the Canadian Mountain West and North, and what this means for the country as a whole. An audience Q&A with the guest speakers and message from the Global Institute for Water Security will conclude the event.

This is a free event hosted by the Canadian Committee for the UN IYGP.
