Minister McKenna visits the Canadian High Arctic with Youth
Indigenous and Non-Indigenous students from around the world had the opportunity to witness first-hand the effects of climate change, during the 2017 Students on Ice Arctic expedition. While on board the vessel, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, and government research scientist, Dr. Paul Smith, facilitated discussions on the history and science of a changing climate in the Arctic.
Warming at the rate of nearly three times the global average, the Canadian Arctic is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. As climate change continues to impact Canada’s diverse landscape, it is more important than ever to engage our youth in the conversation around climate change action and solutions.
