Climate Change and My Community
Theme: Food Security (separate application required for each team member)
This will take place on June 19-23, 2023, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Campus and Field Sites.
Climate change influences our lives in Alaska and the changes occurring in the Arctic impact the entire planet. This project is for community members, educators, Indigenous Knowledge holders, and/or advisors to youth groups interested in learning more about the impacts and feedbacks of a warming Arctic, braiding multiple ways of knowing and observing climate change from their elders, satellites, and their own observations, and making a difference on a climate change issue important to their community.
You and the youth you work with will collaborate with University of Alaska Fairbanks and NASA scientists to conduct an investigation using Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) citizen science protocols and inquiry learning methods.
You and your students will use these data, satellite data, and the knowledge of community Elders to inform a climate change stewardship or adaptation project in the place you live.
Taking this workshop will engage you in a project called Arctic and Earth STEM integrating GLOBE and NASA (SIGNs), which is funded through a cooperative agreement with NASA.
