Our first international course is focused on the connections between global climate and many of the regions across the Arctic which are already undergoing change. It will feature presenters from NASA’s ABoVE Research campaign, from several university across Canada, as well as scientists from the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT). This 3-day course will provide a collegial environment in which participants can develop climate communication products/programs/activities specific to their sites; it will encourage participants to collaborate with others who aren’t in attendance, extending the benefits and lessons learned to nearby communities; and it will help communicators develop key messages and products to help their Canadian audiences understand the many implications of changing climate in the North. The course is being held in Yellowknife and is planning to include a field trip to the Prince Of Wales Northern Heritage Center, which was designed to house and display objects that reflect the heritage of the Northwest Territories. Target audience for the course is experienced interpretive staff, education specialists, communication specialists, and other agency stakeholders, partners, and community organizations from across northern Canada.
