Sikumik Qaujimajjuti – Augmenting Inuit Sea-Ice Knowledge with Geospatial Technologies to Mitigate Travel Risk in Arctic Communities

This project includes the development of a holistic, culturally appropriate, and sustainable training curriculum that provides Inuit youth the skills they need to interpret satellite imagery and create ice travel safety maps for their community. Local map production will build community engagement and transferable skills for youth, while ensuring enhanced integration, preservation, and transfer of local traditional knowledge. The project is piloting in Pond Inlet and Gjoa Haven, Nunavut, and Nain, Nunatsiavut with plans for expansion to more SmartICE serviced communities across Inuit Nunangat.

Funded by the Climate Justice Resilience Fund (CJRF). Other contributors include Pinnguaq and the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC).
