Olivier Poivre dArvor opens the One Planet - Polar 2023 summit

Yesterday, in the heart of Paris,  the One Planet – Polar Summit commenced under the leadership of French President Emmanuel Macron, marking a gathering of several hundred glaciologists, scientists, and global leaders.

This prominent event is a part of the Paris Peace Forum "Seeking Common Grounds in a World of Rivalry". It is co-organized by the Arctic Circle and encompasses a series of seminars and culminates in a final meeting steered by President Macron himself.

At the core of these deliberations lies a critical concern – the alarming melting of ice and glaciers in the Arctic, Antarctica, and the Himalayan region, often referred to as the "Third Pole."

President Macron plans to unveil a special Arctic declaration on the final day of the summit.
