This short documentary presents the environmental challenges in Nunavut. Beneath the immaculate layer of snow, there are mountains of trash. Iqaluit's 2 dumps are filled beyond capacity and the municipality has no plan to solve the problem. Throughout the film, we discover the problems faced by this isolated region and learn just how serious they are. But above all, we hear a call to action from the residents, who don't want to see the North they love disappear. In French with English subtitles.

Education

Ages 14 to 16
Using Iqaluit as inspiration, have students examine their own actions and their responsibility to the environment. How can they play a key role in protecting the planet in their daily lives? What habits can they change to improve things? At school, for example, what can they improve or change? What projects can they suggest?
