Arctic Bridge Summit 2017

Rising temperatures are creating a new political and economic dynamic in the Artic. Some fear that it will spark an intense race for the Arctic’s substantial resources, others see it as a moment of economic and political opportunity to unlock the region’s potential. What is certain is that policy makers and business leaders share responsibility in pushing for co-operation, and preventing conflict, in this fragile ecosystem. In a context of growing geopolitical uncertainty, a common understanding of the region’s challenges and opportunities could allow the Arctic to be a bridge between the East and West. In our two day event we will look at both the promise and peril of a changing Arctic.

The event is held 4.-6. of may 2017 in Levi, Finland.
