Circumpolar Local Environmental Observer Network (CLEO)

Our world is changing rapidly, and local observers can detect subtle changes in weather, landscapes and seascapes, and in plant and animal communities.

Objective

 Increase awareness of vulnerabilities to the impacts of unusual changes in the environment through observations by local residents of Arctic communities.

 

Activities

The leads will continue to promote CLEO in the Arctic region, including some regions of the Russian Arctic, and expanding youth engagement through academic and cultural institutions. Technology, tools development, and monthly seminars are all areas of focus for the U.S. Arctic. The project will strive to increase activity in Sápmi through the Saami Council member organizations and the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry (ICR) Program Office.
