Arctic Futures: Inuit Youth and Climate Storytelling

June 1 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Ethan Tassiuk, Chase Nogasak, Eriel Lugt and Maeva Gauthier present during the 2022 Auviqsaqtut Inuit Studies Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Youth from Tuktoyaktuk and Victoria will present in Bodø this June.

This exciting presentation, part of Session 4.5.1, Strategies for centering Indigenous voices for Arctic community-led research and co-production of knowledge for early career researchers, will take place on June 1, 2024 from 13:30 to 15:00 in the Sinus room at the Stormen Concert Hall.

Participatory Video is a powerful knowledge dissemination tool that can empower youth, strengthen resilience in communities and leads to effective communication avenues with decision-makers to advocate for change. In this research presentation, University of Victoria researcher Maeva Gauthier will share a short movie trailer and the journey of her PhD using a community-based participatory research approach to engage youth in Tuktoyaktuk, on the edge of the Canadian Arctic ocean. Focusing on knowledge co-production and guided by a team of partners, these young leaders embarked on a journey of reflections and storytelling to share what climate change means to their community. One of the outcomes of this project was production of a 22min film “Happening to Us.”
