In this study students will look at how the change in climate is directly affecting the people and culture of the arctic. Students will examine information from Inuit organizations in Nunavut and make connections between western science and the connections that exist between the people and the land.
This study can also lead to examinations of how climate change is affecting other Indigenous communities such as the late formation of ice roads, access to hunting, changes in the land and ecology and how these pressures force changes in ways of living. Students should also be looking at how changes in climate are affecting their own communities through things like greater frequency of extreme storms, extreme temperatures or dry conditions.
