Note: The 3rd Arctic Science Ministerial was originally scheduled for 21-22 November 2020, but was rescheduled to 08-09 May 2021.
In order to engage with Arctic scientists and knowledge holders on multiple levels, the ASM3 organizers plan to engage researchers at the several science meetings throughout 2020. These meetings will give the research community an opportunity to shape and develop the science-to-policy process resulting in the Arctic Science Ministerial Joint Statement to be signed in Tokyo.
Since the last Arctic Science Ministerial in 2018, changes in the Arctic ecosystem and the resulting impacts locally and globally have been severely felt. While the reasons for these changes in climate largely stem from activities outside of the Arctic, the Arctic is warming at a rate of nearly double the global average.
The ASM3 organizers would like to hear directly from the research community about what matters most in international Arctic science collaboration.
