Relocation in the Alaskan Arctic.

Three Degrees Warmer President Lauren Sancken and Executive Director Jen Marlow will be presenting their paper “Relocation in a Regulatory Void” about Kivalina’s climate displacement in the Alaskan Arctic next Tuesday, March 6, at UW School of Law in Seattle (12:30 to 1:20 pm).

If you’re in Seattle, we’d love to see you. We will also be meeting with graduate school students for an informal session on Wednesday evening, March 7.
