Playing Our Cards Right for a Thriving Arctic

June 29, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

FREE

June 29th from 7pm-8:30 pm

Free on Zoom

By 2040 much of the sea ice covering the Arctic Ocean is likely to be gone in summer.  What will this mean for the people and animals that live in the Arctic?  What can we do to minimize sea ice loss as well as adapt to changes in the circum-polar Arctic?  Through this interactive presentation, Dr. Stephanie Pfirman, Foundation Professor with the School of Sustainability, Arizona State University and Senior Sustainability Scientist with Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation, will share what it will take to manage the transition to a thriving Arctic future. Professor Pfirman’s research focuses on understanding and responding to the changing Arctic, developing innovative approaches to formal and informal education, and exploring the intersection between diversity and interdisciplinarity.
