Webinar Description

We are already feeling the effects of climate change, but as severe weather, extreme temperatures, drought, and other events become commonplace, it will be vulnerable communities like those of many Indigenous Peoples that will be most impacted.

A panel of climate change and policy experts described the many ways that climate change is already impacting Indigenous Peoples and how they are drawing on their unique history and culture to adapt and survive. This webinar was moderated by Director-at-Large Dorothy Phillips of the ACS Board of Directors and co-produced with ACS Policy and the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition.

This webinar series is a project of the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition. The team organizer is Oliver Moles, Ph.D.
