About the Forum

The International Arctic Forum "Arctic Days in Moscow" has been held since 2010 and traditionally arouses the big interest of the public, Russian and foreign representatives of culture, scientific, political circles, leading federal and foreign media.

To honor the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian explorers Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, the Forum changed the name to "Days of Arctic and Antarctic in Moscow" and the Antarctic theme has been added to the official agenda of the forum in 2020.

This year, the Forum priority is to unite together efforts of the authorities, business, and society to handle issues of sustainable development of the Arctic territories, the implementation of national projects in the Arctic.

Within the framework of the forum will be held plenary and “table topic” sessions, as well as the International Scientific Congress.

The events will be attended by representatives of federal executives, executives of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, member states of the Arctic Council, leading Russian and foreign companies and research, public and environmental organizations.
