The workshop aims to gather scientists and experts to deliberate on current Arctic issues in a broad context, including climate changes and human security in the Arctic, traditional knowledge and industrial development, collaboration between Arctic and non-Arctic states for pro-active response to rapid Arctic changes.

The questions we aim to address are what Arctic and non-Arctic states could do together for the Arctic sustainable development, and whether we could find effective mechanisms to preserve these sensitive ecosystems.

The participants are invited to discuss the following themes:

  • Climate change and human security in the Arctic
