Sila: Clue in to Climate Change is a national travelling exhibition project that explores climate change in the Arctic and other places in the world. Sila is an Inuktitut word that means climate and all things around us in the environment; the project is presented in English, French and Inuktitut.

Taking a multi-faceted approach to exhibition and programme development, Sila explores a balance between western science and traditional knowledge, and provides immediate and concrete actions and tools to empower individuals and communities to take part in reducing their impact on climate change. The exhibition serves as a backdrop for a variety of interpretive programmes, including curriculum-based school activities, that can be delivered by host institutions.
