Arctic Frontiers 2018: Sustainable development for the next generation. Can business learn anything at all from the scientist? Call 88 – 18 – 48!
In this Side Event, we assemble scientist/researchers and business for a talk about how we can work for a sustainable future in the Arctic.
• The Arctic is changing- to what?
• Climate changes affect our lives today – what are the prospects for the future?
• Business sees new opportunities
• Is the research aligned with the potential development in the Arctic?
• Is there a mismatch between research and societal needs?
• What can we learn from earlier experience?
These are some of the issues we wish to discuss in this session.
