From May 17-21, 2015, Fulbright Canada hosted the inaugural meeting of the Fulbright Arctic Initiative in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Dartmouth environmental studies professor Ross Virginia, Co-lead for the Fulbright Arctic Initiative, and Melody Brown Burkins, Associate Director for Student Programs and Research at the Dickey Center, took part in the meetings.
The Fulbright Arctic Initiative, launched in April in Ottawa, aims to stimulate international collaboration on Arctic issues by bringing together 17 scholars from the eight Arctic Council countries (Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the US). The researchers are meeting in Iqaluit to share their research and work on plans for future collaboration.
