Written by Rachel Hirsch, York University
York University’s Institute for Research and Innovation in Sustainability (IRIS) and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) are co-hosting a series of virtual activities to help organize in advance of the 17th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties in Durban, South Africa (COP17).
The Nanisiniq Project is partnering with York University to screen the following films in parallel on September 27, 2011 starting at 6 p.m CST in Arviat and 7pm EST at York University:
- Line-up (all films available online):
1) Nanisiniq: Journey of Discovery
2) Meet the team
3) Martha’s Gang
4) Experiences of Climate Change from Elders
5) Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change
We are synchronizing with Arviat, Nunavut so that we all watch the movies at the same time and then can have a dialogue with Arviat youth/community members and Toronto youth/community members afterwards. For those who cannot attend the event in person, we will be circulating a link for the online dialogue as soon as it is available. Join our Facebook event for the link.

York University: Join us at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 27th, 2011 at the Curtis Lecture Hall (CLH) F
