Arctic Vision

A photo exhibition entitled 'Arctic Vision' will be opening on Feb 2 at the Hungarian Natural History Museum. Presented by the Canadian Embassy in Budapest, the exhibition will show images of the International Polar Year.

The 21 photos of the exhibit present the everyday life of Canadian scientists and researchers who collaborated on the projects of the International Polar Year (IPY) between March 2007 and March 2009. The Arctic, which encompasses 40% of the territory of Canada, represents one of the priorities of Canadian foreign policy: the Canadian North, with its natural resources, fauna and flora and the 100,000 people to whom the Canadian Arctic gives home contribute to a great deal to Canada's cultural and national identity. It is a vast treasure that Canada would like to protect and hold in trust for future generations.

With this exhibition, the Canadian Embassy would like to raise the awareness of the Hungarian public of the Arctic and also of the challenges that it faces in terms of the effects of climate change, sustainable economic development and sharing experiences and knowledge with other Arctic countries. Canada, together with seven other countries, is a member of the Arctic Council and is proud to take leadership in addressing the issues mentioned above.

The exhibition will be open from Monday to Sunday between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm, until March 6. Closed on Tuesdays.
