All over the world, in our towns and
cities, in our neighbourhoods and in our lives, we are surrounded
by our environment. From the air we breathe, to the water we drink,
to the planet we walk on, our environment connects every one of
us. As far away as we may sometimes think we are, the separation
of our geographic boundaries is often much smaller than we think.
What happens in one part of the world frequently affects other
parts of the planet.
Our world is changing from the effects
of global warming and climate change. This often results in more
(or less) rainfall (floods and droughts) in many regions, fewer
trees, shrinking glaciers, and more pollution. Companies and individuals
are all looking deeper into how we interact with our world and
what we can do to reverse the damage we are creating before it
is too late.
The Summits of Canada Expedition is
committed to raising the awareness of environmental issues. We
may not be able to dramatically change our environment quickly,
but we believe that somewhere, someone, some person, some young
student will hear our message, make a decision to learn more and
start taking steps towards making a difference.
Enjoy exploring the site to learn more
about glaciers, climate change, our ever changing weather patterns,
and our beautiful Parks.
It is an adventure you will never forget!
