In support of the world’s first refrigeration day, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) is launching a Call to Action.
Taking place on 26th June, and aiming to raise awareness and boost accessibility of the refrigeration sector from the grassroots up on an international level, the IIR is calling all stakeholders to actively help bring the HVACR sector to the public eye by organising initiatives in their national markets.
Such initiatives could include, for example, holding open days at refrigeration training centres, organising a poem or a photo competition in coordination with national engineering schools, proposing initiation to refrigeration webinars in sign language or visiting local schools to give the younger generation an opportunity to discover the field.
Proposals are to be sent to the IIR, preferably by 20th May (2019) with the subject ‘Call to Action: World Refrigeration Day’.
As the only independent, intergovernmental organisation in the field of refrigeration, the IIR will create and promote a directory of all the different activities that will be organised worldwide in support of this day.
World Refrigeration Day will be held every 26th June to raise awareness of the importance of refrigeration technologies in everyday life.
As of January 2017, International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) membership will now also give members access to the complete archives of the Journal online.
In line with its corporate objective to promote knowledge of refrigeration and associated technologies and applications on a global scale, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has published a new Informatory Note on ‘The Impact of the Refrigeration Sector on Climate Change’.
