Get ready for a trip around the globe — in this issue Canadian Geographic explores the impacts of climate change worldwide. For the first time, we’ve teamed up with four sister geographic magazines to share unique perspectives on changes in each region.

Lisa Gregoire visits Grise Fiord,  Nunavut, Canada’s most northern community. Kennedy Warne takes us to Tuvalu, a small archipelago in the South Pacific that faces extinction as the shores slowly erode away. Travel to Norway with Chris Turner to explore how carbon taxes are changing behaviour. Visit European vineyards with Charlie Furniss, see the Antarctic Peninsula with Ken Eastwood and discover the drama unfolding around Mount  Kilimanjaro.
