PANEL - Visions for the future: towards truly Northern living environments - Ellen Avard, Vikram Bhatt, Harriet Burdett-Moulton, Paul Parsons, Robert Sauvé, Lola Sheppard & Hilda Snowball
The panel concludes a day during which various speakers have tackled issues, challenges and dimensions relating to the appropriate and meaningful development for Inuit communities. This on-going discussion now invites northern actors / researchers / practitioners from Inuit communities or academic circles to exchange around along the idea of a meaningful and sustainable project for the future: how to dream and build a North [or Norths] that "truly" reflects(s) the identity and aspirations of their communities, as well as the realities forging their territories (... including the climatic and other pressures they face). All agree challenges are numerous and overwhelming: where are the priorities of action? which pillars must be shaken?
