2008 – Out of the Blue

Out of the blue, major challenges and endless opportunities are arising in the polar regions. A changing climate is currently making the Arctic Ocean more accessible to mankind and our constant search for resources. At the same time thawing permafrost makes transportation on land more difficult.

A balanced development of oil and gas activities is on the agenda when scientists, politicians, leaders from the oil and gas industry, representatives of indigenous people, and other stakeholders meet at Arctic Frontiers.
