Elevating permafrost thaw and centering Arctic Indigenous voices
From Nov. 30 – Dec. 12, 2023, Permafrost Pathways will be attending the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP28) taking place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Through participation in Permafrost Day at the Cryosphere Pavilion and other key Arctic programming at the Woodwell Climate Pavilion, our delegation aims to increase the visibility and awareness of permafrost thaw within the global carbon budget discourse and center the voices of Arctic Indigenous communities and partners on the frontlines of climate change.
Permafrost Day in the Cryosphere Pavilion
Permafrost Pathways is a proud co-organizer of Permafrost Day at COP28 held on Monday, Dec. 4 in the Cryosphere Pavilion and hosted by our colleagues at the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI). This is a whole-day program where we’ll be covering the local to global implications of thawing ground across the Arctic permafrost region.
Arctic programming in the Woodwell Climate Pavilion
Join Permafrost Pathways on Tuesday, Dec. 5 and Wednesday, Dec. 6 in the Woodwell Climate Pavilion for additional Arctic programming.
