The Atlantic Council for International Co-operation is pleased to welcome environmental, cultural, and human rights advocate Sheila Watt-Cloutier to deliver the keynote address at the 2018 ACIC Symposium: Walking Together Towards A Sustainable Future, taking place on the University of Prince Edward Island campus from June 21-23. Former Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Conference (which represents the international interests of Inuit residents in Canada, Greenland, Alaska, and Chukotka in the Far East of the Federation of Russia), Sheila Watt-Cloutier speaks with passion and urgency on the issues of today—the environment, the economy, foreign policy, global health, and sustainability—not as separate concerns, but as a deeply interconnected whole. A Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Watt-Cloutier is in the business of transforming public opinion into public policy and offers a new model for 21st century leadership. At a time when people are seeking solutions, direction, and a sense of hope, this global leader provides a big picture of where we are and where we’re headed. Currently living in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Dr. Watt-Cloutier was born in Kuujjuaq, Nunavik (northern Quebec), and was raised traditionally in her early years before attending school in southern Canada and in Churchill, Manitoba.  The lecture is open to the public. All are welcome.
