February 8th – The Lives of Arctic Communities


 
The fragile Arctic, consisting of a vivid spectrum of life, both in water and on land, strongly influences the entire planet and vice versa. Protecting this area is crucial to dampen the effects of climate change, and the Arctic is often seen as a catalyst for the future – but still, very little is commonly known about the snow-covered region in the north. This lecture will introduce listeners to the region and how its communities are affected by climate change, as well as the fight to preserve indigenous rights.
