Filene Auditorium
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

Aqqaluk Lynge, Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council, is a world leader, poet, and teacher. He is the leading voice of the circumpolar Inuit peoples of Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Russia, and he has devoted his life to being an advocate for basic human rights for all indigenous peoples. Mr. Lynge was instrumental in the success of Dartmouth's NSF IGERT graduate training grant proposal to the National Science Foundation on Polar Environmental Change. Greenland is on the front line of climate change, and Mr. Lynge is a central figure in the debate about how Northern societies will adapt to rapid environmental and social change. As he often says, "Climate change is not just a theory to us."

Reception at 3:45pm in the Filene atrium is open to the public. Students are especially encouraged to attend and meet Mr. Lynge.
