The Conference Organizing Committee has released an updated agenda, updated speaker information, and announced a new travel award opportunity for the Arctic Futures 2050 conference. This conference will convene 4-6 September 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Arctic Futures 2050 – convened by the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) – is an international conference designed to enhance collaboration between scientists, Indigenous knowledge holders, and those making and influencing policy. The conference will explore the opportunities and challenges for deeper dialogue between these groups. The goal of the conference is to facilitate such dialogue and avenues to sustained collaboration.

Registration is open, and early-bird registration rates are available through 10 July 2019. The Arctic Futures 2050 Conference website has been updated with the latest agenda and speaker updates.
