Ice Memory team

We need your support to race against time

Ice-core archives hold secrets and keys to climate change adaptation for the next generations.
By drilling and preserving Ice cores with us, you contribute to preserving humanity's most precious natural data libraries.
The alarming retreat worldwide of glaciers is causing irreversible loss of the invaluable Earth’s memory preserved within the ice. Ice Memory preservation is the responsibility of our generation today. It is possible now thanks to the Ice Memory Foundation.

Why get involved with us in this challenge?

The Ice Memory Foundation is a pioneer actor with a unique shared vision and international support from scientists and public institutions, such as UNESCO.
It is now time for civil society, philanthropists, and private partners to join the adventure for the well-being of the next generations.
Your support is crucial in the race against time to preserve climate archives.

What is our main objective for today?

To achieve Ice Memory preservation, which means to drill 20 glaciers and secure their ice cores sustainable management for centuries in the safest storage in the Ice Memory Sanctuary, we need to raise 10M euros between 2025 and 2030.

Have a glimpse to our leaflet.

Supporting Ice Memory is your opportunity to leave a milestone heritage for the next generations.
Your donation will make a direct impact on the number of glaciers that could be drilled in the coming decade.
Indicative average cost of a drilling operation and storing a heritage ice core: between 300.000 € and 1.000.000 €.
Drillings are also a great way to raise awareness around climate change and ice core preservation.
