This session will cover an overview of the Arctic Council and Gwich'in Council International (GCI), highlighting initiatives related to governance, climate change, and promoting Indigenous Knowledge on a global level. We will discuss how decision making on the local level has an impact on the international level, and vice versa. We will also provide a deeper dive on the significance of increased wildfire in the boreal forest on global climate change and how the Arctic Council's permanent participants are meeting this challenge.
Presenter: Edward Alexander, Gwichyaa Zhee Gwich'in, Gwich'in Council International Co-Chair, Arctic educator, leader, and writer
