Yukon Climate Change Adaptation Forum (March 2021)

A 2,5 days online workshop facilitated from Whitehorse, Yukon. The workshop's objective was to establish a conversation space between panelists and participants, young or old, new or experienced, junior or senior, to share wisdom, experience and knowledge with respect to the very present and urgent issue of climate change in the territory. Participants discussed what resilience, and more specifically Yukon resilence, meant to them in a 2021 context.
