Indigenous Perspectives on Climate Change in the Arctic and Beyond

OPEN SEMINAR: MONDAY AUGUST 26 FROM 12 TO 13 IN ODDI 101

Indigenous Perspectives on Climate Change in the Arctic and Beyond

Patricia Cochran, the Executive Director of the Alaska Native Science Commission, will speak about how Indigenous Peoples contribute to domestic and international discussions of climate change. As an Inupiaq Eskimo, she is particularly well-placed to talk about climate change in the Arctic, but she also has extensive experience working with Indigenous communities around the world to bring their voices and perspectives to international debates on the full range of scientific and societal issues raised by a changing climate.

The U.S. Ambassador in Iceland, Luis E. Arreaga, will open the seminar and introduce Cochran.

Moderator: Kristinn Schram, Director of the Centre for Arctic Policy Studies (CAPS).
