Everyone has heard about “global warming” and more recently, “climate change” but this seminar will lead you through the effects of human energy consumption on a place that is acutely affected by us as humans – the Arctic. Immediate effects are significantly changing the upper parts of North America, Asia, and Europe. This year’s annual conference will delve into the emerging issues in the North American Arctic from the perspective of trans-border impact, initiatives, and the need for cooperation. The experts and panelists that will be presenting this year are from all different backgrounds. Some guest speakers are from the government, while others are from academia and various industries. Find out what concrete changes are taking place. If you haven’t asked how climate is affecting emerging national security issues, you will now.
