People

 

IPY will work to promote constructive and respectful interaction with people of the north through community monitoring, recognizing and protecting traditional knowledge, and including them as valued partners in planning and conducting IPY. Researchers will explore their health, languages, and many other areas of their lives to help develop strategies for positive cultural, social, and economic change.
