Déclic conference: L’Arctique, bande-annonce du climat
The Arctic is already suffering the full impact of climate change. The average temperature in northern Canada has increased by more than 2 degrees over the past 70 years, three times more than the global average! The scale of the upheaval observed in the far North foreshadows what could happen in the coming decades at lower latitudes. How is the Arctic changing? What does this tell us about the future? Come and speak with Arctic specialist Philippe Archambault, a professor at Université Laval. This participatory conference will be moderated by journalist Valérie Borde.
