  6. #TBT to 2008-2009, when #Fulbright U.S. Student Zane Thimmesch-Gill was in Canada, studying how the Inuit were adjusting to the changes brought to the region by global warming. @exchangeourworld: Did you know that Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Washington, D.C., right now? On Thursday night, he'll be the guest of honor at the first State Dinner for a Canadian in 19 years. In honor of Prime Minister Trudeau's visit, here's a #ThrowbackThursday to 2008-2009, when #Fulbright U.S. Student Zane Thimmesch-Gill was in Canada, studying how the Inuit were adjusting to the changes brought to the region by global warming. #ExchangeOurWorld #USCanada #JustinTrudeau #PMJTinDC #Canada #ActOnClimate

  7. Norton Ribeiro de Freitas Jr., a 2014-2015 Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Texas A&M University, explored the effect of land use alterations on forest ecosystem services to understand how Brazil could address climate change issues. "The only way we can achieve real progress on some of the most complex issues that confront the world today is by people coming together to find workable, practical solutions," he writes. "That is very much the Aggie Spirit in which I was welcomed to Texas A&M University as a Visiting Fulbright Scholar"
  8. #Fulbright - @NatGeo Fellow Janice Cantieri is traveling in Kiribati and Fiji to understand how #ClimateChange is affecting local communities. @losing.paradise: Taking this tiny boat 3 days on the open ocean to get to Banaba Island ! I'll be out on Banaba for the next two to three weeks (maybe a few months if the boat doesn't come back) and off the grid completely for a while #Banaba #Kiribati #pacific #oceanisland #rabi #fiji #britishphospatecommission #phosphate #mining #displacement #islands #oceania #wwii #boats #colonialism
