'Using scenarios to explore Arctic navigation' presented by Dr. Lawson Brigham

2010-03-04 by

The UAA Complex Systems Group offered this talk by Dr. Lawson Brigham, a senior fellow at the Institute of the North in Anchorage, institute associate at the Scott Polar Research Institute (University of Cambridge, UK), former chair and co-lead for the Arctic Council’s Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment (AMSA), and recently appointed UAF faculty member.

The seminar focused on the process of identifying the two key uncertainties and the significant wild card factors that might heavily influence and add considerable uncertainty to the future of Arctic marine navigation. Using scenarios within AMSA was one of the keys to developing future directions the Arctic states could pursue to build effective and appropriate governance of the global industries operating in the Arctic Ocean. The use of scenario thinking applied to this complex topic also provided significant insight in to how the maritime Arctic is linked to the entire planet in unforeseen ways.

Sinew, Salmon, Shareholders and Cell phones: Four Visions for an Alaska Native Future

2010-03-03 by News, Sports, and Art

Alaska Native tribes are committed to protecting, at the village level, the lands and waters upon which they depend for subsistence, culture, traditional language and community wellness. Tribal leaders have spent decades working to forge tribal self-sufficiency, self-determination and healthy lands and waters so their cultures and communities can survive and thrive. The next generation needs to know how great tribal leaders have dedicated their lives to lead their people through conflicts and challenges. Speakers include Earl Polk, Paul Ongtogruk, Tina Woods and Larry Merculief. This series is supported by UAA and the Alaska Humanities Forum.

This podcast was recorded Jan. 26, 2010.
