Beringia: What's Climate Change to You? set out to be an ethnographic science experience anchored in adventure learning. Building on our Pan-American What Is Climate Change to You?,this project was to establish a local framework for young people in Chukotka communities to document, express and share their place seen through their eyes: doing science and exploring change around the circumpolar arctic - in particular as it relates to shifts in climate.

Since the launch in 2011 the project has traveled in Chukotka six times, for youth in 16 communities on the coast line - from Inchoun in the north to Anadyr in the south - to take part in the project. Over the three years of the project, the youth-generated content from work-shops and community events has been shared with a wide audience in the general public, locally in communities and internationally through exhibits as well as used by millions of learners, as it was broadcast to more than 4,500 schools across the 5 U.S. states and on continents through the GoNorth! programming at PolarHusky.com.

The following narrative will outline the milestones of the project over the 3-year period, while a series of Youth at Work pictures also illustrate the span of youth involvement with the project each year. MORE...
