Arktisk Dag 2017

Nå arrangeres Arktisk Dag ved UiO igjen! Tema for dagen er "Opening the Arctic – Challenges and opportunities".

UiOs arrangerte Arktisk Dag for første gang i februar i fjor. Arrangementet ble en stor suksess, med ca 100 deltakere fra UiO, diverse departementer, Forskningsrådet, næringslivet, Stortinget mm, og med god omtale fra deltakerne.

Tema for dagen: Opening the Arctic – Challenges and opportunities

The Arctic is becoming increasingly accessible due to technological developments and climate change, providing opportunities for expansion of human activities such as fisheries, petroleum activities and tourism. At the same time there are challenges in managing, and understanding, these changes so as to protect social and biological values. This year's Arctic Day presents insights from recent research on the natural and social-economic systems in the  Arctic - interdisciplinary knowledge needed to manage the opening Arctic to the best of future generations.


Arrangementet er åpent for alle nordområdeinteresserte, både UiO-ansatte og andre.
