Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) in partnership with My Climate Risk, a lighthouse activity of World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), co-hosted by Royal Thimphu College and Yunnan University, invites applications from interested applicants in Bhutan for a publishing workshop – Storying climes of the Himalaya, Andes, and the Arctic: Anthropogenic water bodies, multispecies vulnerability, and sustainable living.

The Himalayas, the Andes, and the Arctic/Tundra play a critical role in the hydrological cycle of the earth with their waters (in both solid and liquid forms), and in shaping multispecies habitats and cultural heritages within the biospheres fed by their waters. At the same time, they are experiencing new risks and degradation due to global climate change, such as melting ice, species extinction, and radical transformations of ecosystems and livelihoods. As a global outreach effort of the Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) for comparative studies of climate change in the earth’s altitudinal and latitudinal highlands, this workshop invites social and natural scientists, humanities scholars, graduate students, and development specialists to share their interdisciplinary- intended documentation and discussions of historical and contemporary narratives of climate knowledge in habitat-specific life communities in these three world regions.
