Keynote Presentation: Sheila Watt-Cloutier – Nobel Peace Prize Nominee 

On Climate Change and Human Rights
Halifax, Nova Scotia – Traditional grounds of the Mi’kmaq

At the 2014 IdeaLaw conference, Noble Peace Prize Nominee Sheila Watt-Cloutier spoke about our collective environmental challenges and argued that an adequate response must encapsulate the interconnectivity between our resources, environmental challenges, in particular those that tie the Northern Arctic and the South together, and the relatable human stories behind them. Sheila reminds us that climate change is never simply environmental degradation or melting ice of a remote area of the world but an impact that affects an entire people in terms of human rights, culture, education and security.
