Iñupiat permafrost gravesite melting into the sea

The northernmost town in the United States, Barrow, AK is home to about 8000 people, predominantly members of the Iñupiat tribe, contractors and arctic researchers. What ideas and media do Iñupiat and Scientists have in place to communicate the uncertainties and dynamics of climate change, and how can these ideas be leveraged for a broader understanding of climate change?

I've been researching ways in which natives and scientists cope with change, and now I am looking forward to share photographs, data visualizations and immersive media about the impact of the thawing permafrost on soil and soul in Barrow, AK. How can their experience best be shared, so that we can learn more about being flexible, resilient and open to change ourselves? Click the > sign on the top right of the page to follow lecture images.
