NAP Weekly Announcements - Winter 2012 - Week 6

1. Inuit in the Changing Arctic: A Bright New Future or a Fight for Survival
When: Tuesday, February 07 2012, 4:30pm - 6:00pm

Where: Filene Auditorium, Moore Hall 

Please join the Dickey Center as they welcome Mr. Aqqaluk Lynge as the Rabbi Marshall Meyer Socal Justice Great Issues Lecturer.
(Public reception, 3:45-4:30pm, Filene Auditorium Atrium. Students are encouraged to attend.)

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.” Mr. Lynge grew up in a small coastal Greenland settlement, attended school in Denmark, and returned to Greenland with a passion for poetry, politics, and improving the welfare of all Greenlanders. In his youth, Mr. Lynge emerged as a prominent leader, forming the IA Party in Greenland, which set his homeland on the path from Danish colonial rule to Home Rule and currently Self Government. His long involvement with the Inuit Circumpolar Council (twice as President) places him at the center of critical policy issues defining the future of the Inuit, and the Arctic environment that sustains them.
