The Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH) worked with youth and community-based organizations in Arviat, Nunavut to provide Inuit families with support and information on healthy food choices and the importance of regular physical activity.
Research into housing design, community planning, social and recreational services and understanding the problems Inuit might have getting to work or school, keeping a routine and doing the things that give the most happiness and help Inuit to ‘feel at home’. Funded by the University of British Columbia Department of Psychology and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
Many of Arviat’s digital media and research projects came together for a week-long workshop this month on convergent digital development with Dr. Timothy Pasch from the University of North Dakota.
The vision of Adobe Youth Voices (AYV) was to empower young people to harness creativity and digital skills to create change in their lives and their communities.
Several Arviat media and research project members presented at the Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic annual workshop at the Frobisher Inn.
