20: The Arctic: conflict and cooperation

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Global challenges
english language

Our changing climate is most apparent in the Arctic, where warm temperatures are displacing entire ecosystems and changing the lives of local populations. While we have a wealth of scientific data, we still lack the narratives to help us organise facts into stories of personal significance and turn a chaotic moment in human history into an opportunity for growth. What are the ways forward?
