Environmental Atlas story from Sweden about a special weather condition called Rain-on-snow, which causes great grief amongst sami reindeer herders. The thawing-freezing of the reindeer's most beloved food, the lichen, is literally killing thousands of reindeer whose stomachs are not used to dealing with this new type of weather. A result of climate change?
The Environmental Atlas of Europe is a UNEP-EEA-ESA joint project showcasing communities responding to environmental change across Europe. The films present a series of these inspirational stories about how people are responding to climate change and in so doing, transforming their lives for a more sustainable future.
