Since industrialisation, the average air temperature worldwide has risen by one degree, whereas in the Arctic by five degrees. This leads to rapid changes with serious consequences. This animated explanatory video by the UBA explains what this has to do with us in Germany, 2000 kilometers away. It outlines the federal government's commitment to the Arctic and what each individual can do to protect the Arctic.
This Ecologic Institute film production was funded by the Federal Environment Agency as part of the research project "Environmental Guidelines for a German Arctic Policy".
