Summary

The Arctic is a growing global asset where much can be learned from the diverse ecosystems and strong Indigenous-led environmental stewardship efforts. However, rapid environmental changes resulting from climate change and industrial development is increasing the need for Indigenous communities to be supported in their efforts to steward their own territories across the Arctic and Sub-Arctic.

Join AFC Co-Chair, Dr. Anne Henshaw from the Oak Foundation, in a one-hour discussion with three Northern experts and learn how Indigenous communities are using science, modern technology, and Indigenous Knowledge to empower Northerners and to develop integrative knowledge data-bases, influence policy, and respond to environmental change with culturally-based stewardship programs.
