In 2007, Ecology North and the Dene Nation organized the NWT Climate Change Leadership Summit to inform leaders in the NWT about climate change impacts and to discuss adaptations. Adaptation was defined as learning how to live with the impacts of climate change through adjustment and modifications to lifestyles and in society in general.
The two-day Summit was the first of its kind in the NWT. It brought together more than 100 community, regional, territorial, and federal leaders and resource people from throughout the NWT and elsewhere in Canada and the circumpolar world. the Summit used a variety of media and processes to expose leaders in the NWT to the many facets of climate change. The Summit report summarized the thoughts, concerns, and follow-up needs of leaders in the NWT.
