Arctic: culture and climate

Indigenous Arctic Peoples are on the frontline of global climate change. The Arctic is warming at more than twice the rate of anywhere else. Research predicts that Arctic summers will be ice free within eighty years, affecting us all by altering weather patterns worldwide.

Arctic Peoples have lived with slow, natural climate variability and seasonal weather for 30,000 years. Through adaptation, innovation and collaboration they have persevered in the face of dramatic environmental and social disruption. How might their resilience help us jointly face the challenge of rapid climate change today?
