Ice is shrinking, their land is sinking, and centuries-long traditions like whaling are endangered


       
Hey Kevin,

The indigenous people of Kivalina, Alaska, are on the front lines of climate change: in 10 years, their island will be uninhabitable. The ice is shrinking, their land is sinking, and centuries-long traditions like whaling are endangered.

Despite all this, they’re not panicking. Instead, they’re forging a path that the rest of the world can follow.

Ahead of Earth Day, Global Citizen shines a light on the growing, global class of climate change refugees and explores how the people of Kivalina are becoming unlikely pioneers.

Meet the people of Kivalina and learn how they’re forging ahead.

Thanks for doing what you do,
The Global Citizen Team
