We, a young bunch of natural scientists and journalists, truly believe that recognition is key to care. This is why, in January 2019, we felt the urgency to launch “Recogn.ice”; a nonprofit organisation for the recognition of this cryosphere. Our team is committed to accomplish that one goal: for people around the world to recognise, understand and ultimately care for all frozen parts of our planet. Founded in February 2019 in Zurich, the core team of Recogn.ice consists of a glacierologist, a geologist, a communications consultant, an award-winning designer, data scientists and IT specialists. Together, we strive to present these features and data in an attractive and intuitive way : - with yellow frames indicating the very presence of the surrounding expression of the cryosphere ; - with an intuitive app ; - with an educational website mapping the cryosphere.
