"Our Ice Dependent World"; Northern Research Forum 6th Open Assembly

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 4 September 2011 to 6 September 2011

Where: Hverageroi, Iceland


The overall objective of the Open Assembly in Hveragerði, Iceland, is to address the impact of dwindling ice - terrestrial as well as ocean bound - on the complex interface of nature and society in all climatic zones of the world, with an emphasis on the Arctic, the Antarctic and the Himalayans. In light of the man-made part of climate change, particularly meaning global warming, and the natural phenomena of ice is gradually becoming a concept of global politics - a common heritage of humankind- affecting societal life in quite dramatic ways on a global scale. This turn in the interrelationship and working of the society/nature interface is the focus of the Assembly.
