The webinar will take place 14 May 2024, 12:00-1:15 p.m. Alaska Daylight Time (4:00-5:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time).

Webinar Abstract:

Climate change transcends terms of office and demands steadfast policy responses. The Arctic, which is warming three to four times faster than the rest of the world, is at the forefront of the climate crisis. Communities in the region are witnessing profound disruptions to their daily lives and livelihoods as their environment rapidly transforms.

Join organizers for a deep dive into how durable policies are critical for building the resilience communities impacted by climate change. The discussion will draw out lessons from the implementation of the U.S. Arctic Strategy, featuring insights from officials from the White House and the Department of Interior, climate scientists, and local leaders who are directly engaged in translating policy commitments into action. Learn how the strides made through this strategy are not just responding to current challenges but are setting the groundwork for a resilient future for the Arctic and all communities facing the impacts of climate change.

Registration is required. A Harvard University ID is required for in-person attendance; all are welcome to attend on Zoom.
