A Trip North: Researching Climate and Working for Change in Alaska
Join Zach Brown (PhD, Stanford University) as he speaks about climate change in the Arctic and his effort to create an institute for education and research in Alaska.

Through photos and stories, Zach will take you on two journeys:

First, through the Arctic Ocean, where declining sea ice is changing life for biological communities and indigenous peoples, and where industrial expansion threatens a fragile ecosystem.

Second, through the Pacific Northwest, where Zach trekked solo for 4 months on foot and by kayak – 2300 miles from Stanford University to the Inian Islands – to build a school in his Alaskan homeland.
