Background

York University’’s Institute for Research and Innovation in Sustainability (IRIS: http://www.irisyorku.ca) and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS: http://www.apecs.is/) are co-hosting a
series of virtual events to help organize in advance of the 17th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties in Durban, South Africa (COP 17: http://unfccc.int/meetings/cop_17/items/6070.php). Please see our website for more information: http://climatejustice.irisyorku.ca/

We are pleased to announce that for our first event we are partnering with the Nanisiniq: Arviat History Project (http://nanisiniq.tumblr.com/) to screen a series of films in parallel on September 27, 2011 including: “Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change” by Zacharias Kunuk and Ian Mauro. We are synchronizing with Arviat, Nunavut so that we all watch the movies at the same time and then can have a dialogue between Arviat youth/community members and Toronto youth/community members afterwards.
