International Action on Global Warming (IGLO)
  • General public
IGLO was officially launched on 1 March 2007 to coincide with the start of IPY. IGLO is designed to raise worldwide public awareness about global warming and the particular ways that the polar regions influence Earth's climate, environments, ecosystems, and human society. IGLO's communication and education materials include a toolkit that science centres and museums can use for their own IPY activities.

The toolkit contains about 150 different products ranging from basic science articles to on-line games provided by the International Polar Foundation, as well as 'decision making' games in 15 languages. Science centres have contributed 50 easy to reproduce interactive experiments based on specific design workshops held in three cities (Barcelona, Washington DC and Miami).
