Using a participatory process to explore contaminants research communication from a community perspective
  • Educators, Teachers
  • Other
For over twenty years, Northerners have received information about contaminants and their health impacts. Despite improved message sensitivity, years of considerable effort disseminating this complex information produced only general awareness of contaminants issues. Determining appropriate communicative means provides ongoing challenges, with greater focus placed on the intended audience and less consideration for communication processes and 'audience involvement'. Using contaminants research conducted through IPY?s CFL System Study and ArcticNet, we explore the communication of research results with the Inuvialuit community of Sachs Harbour, NT. We aim to consider participants' knowledge and perceptions of contaminants research and how it is disseminated to communities
Arctic
Yes, all of it
