2017 International Conference on Arctic Science: Bringing Knowledge to Action
April 24 – 27, 2017 | Reston, VA
Organized by: Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)
Pan-Arctic Options Participants: TBD
Building on the 2011 Arctic Messenger of Change Conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark, the 2017 International Conference on Arctic Science: Bringing Knowledge to Action will provide updated scientific decision-making and policy-relevant information across a broad array of different Arctic issues and related scientific disciplines. Emphasis will be on what state-of-the-art research is now telling us about present and future change within the Arctic–and its implications for policy and decision-making. Organized to include plenary and breakout sessions covering both disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, results from the various sessions will be used in shaping future science priorities and strategies across the Arctic Council’s six Working Groups.
