Content: Circumpolar scientific cooperation in the Arctic is more important than ever due to both climate crisis and challenging geo-political situation. It is responsibility of Arctic experts and scientists to find a legitimate way for continued dialogue and exchange of knowledge between transdisciplinary Arctic experts of all nations.
This dialogue should proceed in people-to-people format (in compliance with and bearing in mind the current regulations), be cross-disciplinary and focus on topics of mutual importance, such as problems associated with climate change and sustainability of the Arctic regions and communities.
The side-event is to address the following issues
- How scientific research has been impacted after 2022? Personal stories.
- What are blind spots in Arctic scientific data? (for natural sciences, social sciences and Indigenous knowledge).
- How can the scientific community (natural sciences, social sciences and Indigenous knowledge) operate with Pan-Arctic inclusion to address global questions?
