Canadian-American Center presents Inuit Climate Change Activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier

On March 29th, UMaine welcomes….

Sheila Watt-Cloutier

Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and
World Leader on Global Climate Change and Human Rights

Sheila Watt-Cloutier changed the discourse on climate change;

it’s a human rights issue.

Sheila Watt-Cloutier is in the business of changing public opinion into public policy.  Experienced in working with global decision makers for over a decade, Watt-Cloutier offers a new model for 21st Century leadership.  She treats the issues of our day — the environment, the economy, foreign policy, global health, and sustainability — as a deeply interconnected whole.  Every decision, whether environmental, political or economic, has a profound effect on those far from the corridors of power; to understand this connection is vital to building a sustainable world.  This is Watt-Cloutier’s message.
