Polar Bears on Ephemeral Ice – Letters Competition
At the initiative of Équiterre and the Fédération des coopératives du Nouveau Québec, from February 1 to 19, 2010, a bronze polar bear frame, covered with ice and sculpted with the collaboration of Inuit sculptors, will undertake a long march for Arriving at the Vancouver Olympic Games. This sculpture, created within the framework of an international artistic project, will accomplish its final mission during the melting of the ice to leave only a bone and remind everyone of the fragility of life on Earth.
What powerful images to guide young people in reflection and awareness, in order to inspire their will to change the course of things by engaging personally and collectively in the fight against climate change!
