Labrador at the Front Lines of Climate Change
Temperature increases, sea ice changes, melting permafrost - these are just some of the environmental changes already happening in Labrador as a result of climate change. For a region with a population so connected to the land, these changes will have tremendous impacts on the health, wellbeing and livelihood of the people who live there.

Join the Harris Centre as we hear from panelists Derrick Pottle, Abigail Poole, Stanley Oliver, and Jodie Ashini, and moderator Dr. Ashlee Cunsolo, Interim Dean of the School of Arctic and Subarctic Studies at the Labrador Institute of Memorial University.
