The 24th annual Alaska Forum on the Environment (virtual)

Feb 22, 2022 | Meetings

ArtSLInK members organized two sessions. The first session, Arctic communities and Frozen Commons in the context of Change, Resilience and Sustainability, was to introduce the recently launched project to study the Arctic Frozen Commons (FC). Jon Waterhouse moderated the session while Vera Kuklina, Andrey Petrov, Alexander Kholodov, and James Temte gave presentations.

The second session, Amplifying Arctic Community Voices about Frozen Landscapes (listening session), was aimed to gather communities’ concerns and experiences about Arctic ice, snow, and permafrost landscapes collectively used and governed by communities and non-local stakeholders. During the session, about 20 participants from diverse communities of Alaska and Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) shared their opinions and experiences about the proposed topic.
