Thank you for taking time to enter the Liftopia sweepstakes and welcome to Protect Our Winters! If you’re not familiar with us, we’re a non-profit that’s fighting climate change on behalf of the global snowsports community. Our mission is to unite the community and our industry to fight climate change, ensuring the future of our sports, our livelihoods and to make sure that our children have a healthy planet to call home.

We work with pro athletes, industry partners and resorts to build awareness about the “greatest environmental issue of our time” and its direct impact on all of us. We’re building a social movement and mobilizing our community to take meaningful action against climate change. There is strength in numbers, and we’re making a difference.

Now is an exciting time to be a part of this movement, and we hope you’ll join us. We’ve already had a busy fall and we have an even busier winter ahead. Throughout the year, we’ll be sending you information about us, climate news and updates an opportunities to get more involved. We promise we won’t spam you, but we will send engaging content to empower you to make a difference with us.

EPA Region 8 is launching an Earth Day poster contest in conjunction with the 2014 EPA Earth Day theme of climate change, and with the EPA Climate Change in Focus Video Contest.

Theme of the Poster Contest:  What are the impacts of climate changes in my area?  The Earth’s climate is getting warmer. Rain patterns are changing, sea level is rising, and snow and ice are melting sooner in the spring. As global temperatures continue to rise, we are likely to see more changes in our climate and our local environment. These changes have the potential to affect people, animals, and ecosystems in many ways.  To enter the poster contest, represent the climate change impacts in your area on a poster using the art medium of your choice (drawing, painting, photograph, fiber, mixed media, etc.).

All posters will be displayed, and the winners will be announced, at an event on Monday, April 28, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm at the EPA Region 8 Regional Office in Denver, CO.

Environmental Change & Human Health

wms_logo.jpgOUR PATIENTS – OUR PLANETEnvironmental Change & Human Health

October 30 – November 3, 2013

Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Alabama

I don’t think it is a surprise to anyone that we are undergoing a period of intense discussions and even debate about environmental change. I think we all agree that something is happening whether it’s global warming…the migration of hazardous insect species northward…the release of environmental toxins, it’s important for physicians to know what these sorts of events are going to do to our planet and then the impact they’re going to have on human health….
-Paul S. Auerbach, MD, Co-Founder, Wilderness Medical Societyoilspillaerialvisit.JPGOne of the greatest challenges of our time is to address environmental changes that may harm human health. Some of these environmental changes like water and wastewater treatment have had a positive impact; however, others such as air pollution, toxic chemicals, loss of biodiversity and climate change have been detrimental to human health. Our health and the environment will forever be inseparable.This stand-alone conference presented by the Wilderness Medical Society is designed for health care providers to learn how changes in the environment affect the medical conditions of their patients and how to be more engaged at working on solutions.

water%20testing.jpgThe conference will be held at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab near Mobile, Alabama. Our expert faculty comes from many disciplines – medicine, science, law, green consulting and education – presenting on topical issues such as health impacts of climate change, air pollution, toxins, endocrine disrupters and the education of physicians in the future.

Please join us this fall for the Wilderness Medical Society’s first conference about the Environment & Human Health on the Alabama Gulf Shore. Details and registration are available at wms.org/conferences.

We invite you to view a short video about this exciting event in wilderness medicine magazine or at wms.org!
