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 www.exploratorium.edu/echo . Barrow Arctic Science Consortium (BASC) www.arcticscience.org
is symposium facilitator; the Exploratorium is our national host.
