A key message under a water glass. A voice for Arctic experts during a Ministerial meeting. A glossy magazine for embassies. Learn about some of the ways the communications team at the Arctic Council Secretariat communicates findings from a wide range of Arctic science and research to high-level policymakers – covering topics from climate change to biodiversity, from waste management to suicide prevention, from safe shipping to oil spill preparedness. Through storytelling and solution-oriented outreach, the team has brought some of the most pressing Arctic concerns to the ministers’ table – encountering (and overcoming) multiple challenges in the process.
Kristina Bär is the head of communications at the Arctic Council Secretariat (ACS) in Tromsø. She has worked as an Arctic science communicator for over ten years, previously at EU-PolarNet and the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. Her academic background is in rhetoric, international communication, and interdisciplinary environmental science.
About Fram Talks
The Fram Centre building offers a multi-disciplinary, international, multicultural work environment – and in 2023 we want to leverage this diversity. On the second Tuesday of every month (except July and August), you can be a part of «Fram Talks», a venue for exchanging knowledge and learning from each other.
These informal events will last 45 minutes, from 09.00 to 09.45, and will occur in Lysgården at the Fram Centre.
We will of course serve coffee and a light breakfast!
