Changing Stories

In 2009, the Rigolet Inuit Community Government in Nunatsiavut led a community-driven, participatory, storytelling project which examined the impacts of climate change on human health (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) and adaptation strategies. The community of Rigolet worked with researchers, epidemiologists, and a not-for-profit organization to use digital media to gather stories and data about climate change in the region, the climate-health relationship, and current and possible adaptation strategies. The 'digital dialogues' gathered created an innovative and powerful platform for health media campaigns and also for analyzing the impacts of climate change on health in Inuit communities.
