As the year 2021 is approaching UIS made a decision to make it the International Year of Caves and Karst. The main motivation for such a step is the need to promote information about caves and karst among general public who is unfortunately not quite aware of importance and scale of such a phenomenon as caves.
Within the framework of the initiative is teaching the public about various aspects related to caves and karst and giving people information on how to get involved with cave and karst related activities.
The main website dedicated to the IYCK is http://www.iyck2021.org/. More information will be available later.
