The Ecological club Black Stork launched "Altay's Melting Beauty" exhibition on 28 February 2012 in the Darwin Museum in Moscow.  The museum visitors have unique opportunity to see pictures of melting glaciers for them to realize that climate change is not something abstract, but very much a reality on our planet that results from excessive consumption. The pictures were taken by youth climate leaders during the expedition to the Belukha Mountain that took place in summer of 2011 in Altay. Oxfam contributed to the  "Altay's Melting Beauty" exhibition by bringing photographs from “After the Thaw” exhibition devoted to food security issues that took place in London in autumn 2011. All of the photos were taken as part of Oxfam’s international campaign “GROW.” The stories in the pictures are about people who are trying to survive, grow crops and feed themselves, their families and their communities in spite of unpredictable seasons and precipitation when extreme weather events increase in frequency and severity.
