Global Monday - The Arctic and Environmental Justice Issues

William H. Gates Hall

12:30 PM - 1:20 PM

UW Law and the UW Fulbright Chair in Arctic Studies present:

“Addressing Cumulative Impacts of Environmental Change and Development Projects on Sea Ice Ecosystems in Hudson Bay”

Joel P. Heath, 2014-15 UW Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies; Executive Director, The Arctic Eider Society

As the 2014-15 UW Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies, Dr. Heath's research project combines Inuit and scientific knowledge to address cumulative impacts of environmental change and hydroelectric developments on sea ice ecosystems in Hudson Bay. Community driven research programs provide capacity to assess hydrological changes affecting sea ice habitats, oceanography and wildlife, with a focus on increasing entrapments and mortality of marine birds and mammals. The project considers how increasing hydroelectric exports from eastern Canada to the U.S. provides new challenges as well as opportunities to address water management issues through policies which more closely match distribution with the natural timing of the hydrological cycle, mitigating impacts on sea ice and Inuit. It promotes establishing inter-jurisdictional stewardship for Hudson Bay by establishing a consortium of academics, government, communities and industry to assess cumulative impacts and address environmental justice issues in Hudson Bay.

Joel Heath served as project leader for Canada’s largest International Polar Year Training, Education and Outreach project establishing long term community-driven research programs in Hudson Bay. He is Director/Producer of the award winning feature film People of a Feather. Heath has a Ph.D. from Simon Fraser University in Biological Sciences and broad interdisciplinary experience.

The Canada Fulbright Visiting Chair in Arctic Studies brings scholars, scientists, practitioners and leaders involved in Arctic affairs to UW to build new synergies with Canadian colleagues and reinforce relations. It is supported by the UW Office of Global Affairs, the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, Social Sciences Division, College of Arts and Sciences, College of the Environment, and the Foundation for Educational Exchange Between the U.S. and Canada, Ottawa. The Canadian Studies Center serves as the hosting unit for the Canada Fulbright Chair. The lecture is co-sponsored with UW Law Global Affairs, the Arctic Law and Policy Institute, and Environmental Law Initiatives.
