Another Climate Report: Responsibility, A Quick Guide and Accountability

September 23 @ 2:00 pm to 3:15 pm AKDT

Speakers: Princess Daazhraii Johnson and John Walsh (ACCAP at the International Arctic Research Center)

Many of our AK Indigenous People express the responsibility to family, village and broader community in the values identified by our Elders. As leaders, this responsibility relates to accountability and action. In 2019, Youth and Elders at the AK Federation of Natives passed a resolution that clearly calls out our climate crisis and the need to act. More recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) and the Status of Tribes and Climate Change (STACC) Reports were released with some significant and key messages. In this webinar, senior climate scientist Dr. John Walsh will highlight a Quick Guide to Climate reports including their purpose, how they are created, some key messages for Alaska, and how they might be used with other information in climate change adaptation work. Indigenous climate activist and creative, Princess Daazhraii Johnson, explores our individual and collective responsibility to act and the need for leadership in all arenas of governance/government to be accountable to the messages in timely climate reports and act on behalf of our children and humanity as a whole.

This is a joint webinar between the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy and the Alaska Tribal Resilience Learning Network, part of the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center.
