Keyano College presents a one-day Climate Change Conference hosted virtually and in-person at Keyano College on Saturday, March 26, 2022, Earth Hour, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT.

What is The Climate Change Conference?

The overall goal of this conference is to bring together scientists, experts, organizations, Indigenous leaders, and other participants as partners in learning to share and increase knowledge of the climate change, impact and adaptation and to provide information about policies, programs, and tools in place to protect, mitigate and help Northern and Arctic communities to adapt.

By the end of the conference, we hope to enhance the understanding of: 

  • Climate change in the past, present, and future.
  • Effects of the impact of climate change in Northern communities and Arctic regions.
  • Methods and strategies used by communities to adapt, build, and enhance their climate change resilience.

To achieve these objectives, participants will be engaged in a diverse range of oral presentations from several leaders in climate change around the globe and poster presentations from our student members.
