A six-day trip through the Beaufort Delta made a changing climate bracingly tangible for roughly a dozen youth leaders this week.

Running from August 22 to 28, Ecology North’s Young Leaders’ Summit on Northern Climate Change had participants meet with elders, harvesters and community members studying the first-hand effects of climate change. This is the second time Inuvik has hosted the event, where youth delve into topics such as coastal erosion along the Arctic coast and the changing water conditions of the Mackenzie River.
