Theme 1: Arctic Food Security
Climate changes in the Arctic have complex ecosystem impacts on human food security and health, both locally and globally. It is important to trace these impacts from their sources in the Arctic to know how these changes affect food security, nutrition and health.
Theme 2: Knowledge-based development in the Arctic
Scientific knowledge is considered to be a critical component of decision-making in addressing fundamental challenges. In order to facilitate discussion we plan an interactive session, where good practices, barriers to implementation and potential solutions will receive particular attention.
Theme 3: Disruptive technologies
Since the first digital products were developed, digitalization has leapt forward and we are now facing a step-change in performance and utilization of digital products in research, businesses and society. We invites speakers addressing "disruptive technologies" developed and/or applied for the Arctic.
Theme 4: Local or Global Arctic? Multi-scaled considerations of connections and remoteness in climate-impacted communities
In this session, we will address this urgency and seek to bring together experts concerned with understanding Arctic climate change and its impacts on communities.
