Event Details

The Indigenous People’s Climate Change Working Group Conference took place last fall, hosted by Dartmouth College.  CELT, the Rockefeller Center, and the Dickey Center are building on that by launching numerous indigenous sustainability partnerships.  The Climate Institute and its Dartmouth interns are here to present ways in which you can get involved in this exciting work and become active in climate problem solving, as well as become leaders in the field.  The luncheon panel will focus on how the Dartmouth community can work with tribal college and communities on several sustainability initiatives.  We will also discuss the Arctic Protection Initiatives currently in progress.  

The Center for Environmental Leadership Training (CELT) is the educational arm of the Climate Institute, based in Hanover, NH.  It is a rapidly growing team of students and international virtual interns, who are working on several key projects to promote climate awareness.  These projects include:

  • Hydropower serving Alaska native villages
  • Sustainable agriculture through drip irrigation and hydroponics
  • Sustainable inland relocation for vulnerable communities
  • Creating a solar-powered biodiesel refinery on the Osage Reservation in Oklahoma
  • Black carbon mitigation in the Arctic
  • Indigenous People's Virtual Forum on Climate Change

Other projects and opportunities include:

  • CELT's Smart Solutions Blog
  • Writing pieces for the newsletter, the Climate Alert
  • Potential internships for the upcoming fall and winter terms

Join us for lunch and a chance to talk with the President and CEO of The Climate Institute, Mr. John Topping Jr. '64, and a panel of current CELT interns.
