Knowledge has always been essential for people living and operating in the Arctic. As scientific knowledge has grown more comprehensive and widely available, its potential to play an ever more central role in our understanding and management of the region has increased. Many Arctic countries, communities and businesses aspire to have knowledge-driven policies and strategies to guide the sustainable development of communities in the Arctic. Science is the foundation for policies and business strategies that guide the sustainable development of communities in the Arctic.
At Arctic Frontiers 2020, knowledge – our most valuable resource – will be in focus as we examine the state of climate and the oceans in the Arctic, ask about the resilience and adaptability of societies in the region, and discuss best practices for business and technology development. We will explore how our current knowledge, shape the way we cooperate with one another, and how we can maintain stability in this unique region.
In 2020, the Arctic Frontiers plenary program will have five main sessions with the following working titles:
- The State of the Arctic,
- Powered by knowledge,
- Resilient Arctic communities
- Arctic Ocean
- Sustainable business development
