Come to ISER and hear Chris Southcott of Lakehead University in Ontario discuss the initial findings of the Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic project. That project is bringing together researchers and community representatives from northern Canada and other circumpolar areas to identify potential ways of improving the well-being of northern communities affected by Arctic resource development. Past resource development in the Arctic has often created social and economic challenges for northern communities but provided little benefit for them. Dr. Southcott is leading this international project.
When: Friday, May 31, 12 to 1
Where: ISER conference room, Diplomacy Building, fifth floor
