Eric Solomon, Director of Arctic Programs at the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre, will present 'Life In A Changing Arctic,' an interactive talk highlighting life in Canada’s Arctic communities, their strong connection to the land and the rapid changes they are experiencing. Eric will speak about his experiences working in the Arctic, economic issues, the significance of the changing sea ice that connects Arctic communities, and the opportunities and challenges brought by an increasingly accessible Arctic ocean. Eric leads the Vancouver Aquarium’s Arctic research, conservation and education initiatives, and works with Arctic aboriginal communities, researchers, policy-makers, educators and the general public to improve knowledge and dialogue on this important region. Eric is an expert on integrated approaches to building and communicating scientific and locally-derived knowledge about the Arctic and its regional issues.
