AFE 2022: Amplifying Arctic Community Voices About Frozen Landscapes – Listening Session
February 9 @ 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
This session is aimed to gather communities’ concerns and experiences about Arctic ice, snow, and permafrost landscapes collectively used and governed by communities and non-local stakeholders. This project will advance transdisciplinary research by converging Arts, Science, Local and Indigenous Knowledge systems for developing a deeper understanding of frozen commons resilience and sustainability. The questions for discussions during the session: 1) What frozen commons are recognized by culturally diverse Indigenous and local communities and regional stakeholders, 2) How local and Indigenous communities perceive collaboration with researchers for sustainable use of frozen commons, 3) Which key issues of frozen commons state and transformation should be collaboratively addressed by researchers and communities?
