A unique new outreach campaign with the goal of raising awareness about the world-leading climate change research in Manitoba’s Arctic launched Friday.

Expedition Churchill: A Gateway to Arctic Research is highlighting the research being done in the Churchill and Hudson Bay region by scientists from the University of Manitoba.

The project includes a new Arctic research-themed dining car that will travel the rail line between Winnipeg and Churchill as of Sunday, coinciding with the long-awaited return of passenger rail service to Churchill.

In addition to the train, a multimedia e-book and interactive kiosks will be located throughout the province, including at the zoo’s Journey to Churchill Exhibit, Travel Manitoba, James Richardson International Airport, the Town of Churchill, the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, and in the Wallace building on the U of M campus.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
