Join AKWorld for this discussion of climate, security, economic opportunity, science, resilience and other implications of a changing Arctic. Whether you are in Florida, California, Alaska, or another state in-between, you have experienced significant weather changes amplified by a rapidly changing Arctic. Come, listen, and join the conversation with two Alaska Native women who have first hand knowledge and understanding of this important issue for Alaska, the United States, and the World. Professor Sarah Aarons is an Alaska Native (Inupiaq) Earth Scientist born in Dillingham and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Her maternal family is from Unalakleet, located on the coast of the Norton Sound close to the Bering Strait. The village is particularly vulnerable to fluctuations in sea level, storm surges, and rapid freeze-thaw conditions. Her background and lived experiences in Alaska led to a close relationship with natural resources, as she and members of her family and community are experiencing how climate change in the Arctic is altering weather, the environment, and ecosystems. This was a driving force that led her to focus on paleoclimate and climate change as an Earth Scientist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

WorldQuest 2021!

February TBD | 6:00 | Online

We have no idea what the plan for Virtual WorldQuest is, but it'd feel wrong to just give it a miss, so let's assume we come up with something suitable and that it's a jolly good time.
