In early March, Arctic Energy Alliance’s (AEA) Inuvik Regional Project Coordinator, Sheena Adams, made a community visit to Ulukhaktok.  While in the community, Sheena hosted an Energy Fair and met with community organizations and Hamlet staff. The energy fair was used to promote AEA Rebate programs and included a screening of the documentary “Water on the table”. Sheena enjoyed meeting all the children who attended the Energy Fair and was impressed with their knowledge on climate change and enthusiasm to learn about energy conservation. Unfortunately, the school visit was cancelled due to a blizzard – but she plans to visit the school the next time she is in Ulukhaktok. Sheena would like to thank the community for taking good care of her while she was there – the sharing of traditional knowledge, care during the blizzard, and the warm welcome (and airport pickup) were really appreciated.
