My first morning in Greenland coincides with another important first day in the world: the start of COP26. For the next two weeks, the world's leaders gather in Glasgow, Scotland for the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference. Their goal: design a global front against climate change. The outcomes of this meeting will affect the entire world, least not Greenland.
This summit of world leaders is looking to design new agreements on how to handle what could be catastrophic climate change. But its only just starting. So I have no great insights into the outcomes of this event. What I can do is provide a bit of background on the conference and its connection to Greenland. The world will know more in thirteen days.
What is COP26?

After reading this posting, I feel a little bit more hopeful towards our future and the future of our planet. I can only continue to hope and do my best to aid in the efforts to help minimize the damages caused by rising global temperatures. I find it surprising that not all major nations are taking part and I wish that that will change in the future.

I am an anthropology professor, writer, researcher and global traveler. In fall of 2021, I led an experiential eLearning project connecting US students (and others) with the people, places, and industries of Greenland. I redesigned a research trip into a virtual field trip for my students who didn't have any Study Abroad options. All of the videos, photos, interviews, and storytelling are still here to enjoy!
