Description

From 20-24 April 2009 the Inuit Circumpolar Council hosted in Anchorage, Alaska a Global Summit on Climate Change that brought together indigenous delegates and observers.

Kowanyama Rangers Anzac Frank and Phillip Mango attended the Summit with assistance from the United Nations University and the Christensen Fund.

The purpose of the Summit was to enable Indigenous peoples from all regions of the globe to exchange their knowledge and experience in adapting to the impacts of climate change, and to develop key messages and recommendations to be articulated to the world at the Conference of Parties (COP) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Copenhagen, Denmark in December 2009.
