Jim Gregson: The Rapidly Changing Arctic; followed by an open discussion on Climate Change, facilitated by Grace Hurford

This is a double bill with Jim Gregson presenting his slideshow of numerous expeditions to Greenland 1991-2018, including his latest to North Liverpool Land in 2018, which highlights changes to the Arctic as a result of climate change; followed by a discussion/open forum on the effect of climate change in mountain regions facilitated by AC Green Group member, Grace Hurford. If you are interested in the Arctic and/or climate change as it affecting the mountains, this is a great opportunity to share you observations and views.
