Solutions to climate change and its effects will not come from hope alone or found solely in future technological or current regulatory innovations. We must work together to solve the underlying causes of the ongoing transformation of our Arctic systems. We must harness all resources at our disposal.
So far, many climatic actions have centered on measurement, information gathering and analysis. Now there is a strong interest and need to move towards action-based scientific programs to improve and reverse the dramatic effects of climate change in a concrete way.
Two leading organizations have come together to address the greatest challenge facing the Arctic region: Global Warming.
Arctic Circle is the largest network of international dialogue and cooperation on the future of the Arctic.
University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a network of more than 200 universities, colleges, research institutes and other organizations concerned with education and research in and about the Arctic.
The purpose of this unique collaboration is to create a new forum that incentivizes the facilitation of scientific action programs.
