The Big Thaw
Learn how melting sea ice and glaciers are transforming the Arctic. One of the most obvious changes in the Arctic, in recent history, is the reduction of sea ice cover and rapid retreat of glaciers. How do these changes affect landscapes, ecological systems and the people that live in the Arctic, and how do we effectively communicate these changes to broad global audiences? Join us for presentations that explores the Arctic—the changes, opportunities and challenges ahead for the Arctic environment and its people, and the stories that illuminate the physical and social transformation currently underway in this region. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and Q & A.
