|Mission and Goals|
Life On Thin Ice® leverages the power of photography combined with science to communicate accurately and effectively about climate change in the Arctic, increase public interest in the issues and understanding of the problems, and motivate informed action to address the growing climate crisis.
Goals of this long-term project:
• Document the Earth systems, ecosystems, species, and people of the circumpolar Arctic and the increasing effects of climate change on them;
• Educate the public and policy-makers about climate change issues, by enhancing their understanding of the Arctic and the current problems, long-term risks, and world-wide consequences of the transformation that is underway in the Far North due to rising temperatures;
• Galvanize effective action to address the causes of global warming and mitigate its effects.
