Tomorrow is the first day of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, which is taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Also known as the Rio +20 Earth Summit, the event will bring together more than 100 heads of state, along with representatives of business and non-government organizations.

CKUT spoke earlier today with 24-year-old McGil graduate Audrey Yank, who is in Rio as part of the Students on Ice Alumni Delegation.

Her group is trying to put a spotlight on the impacts of climate change in the polar regions, and on the aboriginal people living there. You can hear the interview here:
