WHO:             People impacted by climate change, including educators, scientists, artists and policy makers


The Iñupiat of the Arctic Slope are on the front lines of the battle against global climate change, but they are not the only people affected by the warming of the planet. The ECHO (Education through Cultural and Historic Organizations) Partners symposium will discuss without jargon or overly technical language the effects of climate change on the planet.  Join scientists, artists, educators and ECHO partners from Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi and Massachusetts as we develop an effective dialogue on the issue of clearly communicating and educating the science of climate change to our global community.


The ECHO Climate Change Symposium will be permanently available and archived by the Exploratorium at .  Barrow Arctic Science Consortium (BASC) is symposium facilitator; the Exploratorium is our national host.
