Lecture/Seminar 50th Anniversary Deans' Lecture Series: Environmental Change in the Western Arctic: Understanding Impacts and Adapting to a Warmer World 2013-02-22 12:30:00
Description

Trevor Lantz is a terrestrial ecologist who works at a variety of scales to understand environmental change in northern ecosystems. Members of his lab combine detailed field investigations of vegetation and microenvironment with broad-scale change detection and spatial pattern analysis. By combining field investigations and regional mapping, his research program seeks to link knowledge of key processes with data on landscape-level variation in critical drivers. Current research projects in the western Arctic focus on permafrost degradation, storm surges, shrub encroachment, catastrophic lake drainage, and anthropogenic disturbance

Lecture/Seminar A New Leaf: Turning to Our Region's Future 2013-02-22 All Day
Description

The demographic profile of the capital region is changing. As the population size and structure changes, demands for labour, housing, health care, transportation, education and many other aspects of our region will change over the years to come. By planning ahead, the region will be able to take advantage of opportunities and prepare for a prosperous future.

Decision makers, planners, researchers and the general public will discuss the opportunities, challenges and options created by these anticipated changes and seek ways to work together effectively.

A New Leaf: Turning to Our Region's Future provides an opportunity to consider the potential impact of demographic change in our region. This two-day event includes a public lecture on Thursday, February 21, 2013 (7:00 pm) and a discussion forum on Friday, February 22, 2013 (8:30 am - 4:30 pm).

The public lecture is free of charge and no registration or tickets are required. To attend the discussion forum, registration and a fee applies. View the full program.
