“The Secret Lives of Glaciers” with Nat Geo Explorer M Jackson, Ph.D.
Dr. M Jackson will explore the fascinating geography of glaciers on this planet. Based on over a decade of research in the Arctic, Dr. Jackson shares many localized stories of what happens to an Icelandic community as their local glaciers disappear. Profoundly hopeful, Jackson’s talk shows how ice influences people just as much as people influence ice–and what all of us can do to move into a future with healthy glaciers and healthy communities. Jackson is a geographer, glaciologist, TED Fellow, a National Geographic Society Explorer, and author of the 2019 book “The Secret Lives of Glaciers.”
