Arctic Futures 2050—convened by the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH)—will be an international conference designed to enhance collaboration between Arctic scientists from many disciplines, diverse indigenous knowledge holders, and policy makers from all levels of government. Policy makers (from local to national and international governments) need timely access to clearly communicated knowledge of the Arctic environment, and researchers need a clear understanding of the information needs of policy makers. Arctic Futures 2050 will explore the opportunities and challenges for deeper dialogue between scientists, Indigenous knowledge holders, and those making and influencing policy. The goal is to facilitate such dialogue and avenues to sustained collaboration. To that end, this conference asks:
Invitees will include Arctic scientists; Indigenous knowledge holders; policy makers; natural resource managers; and military, industrial, and other operators in the Arctic.
Date: 4-6 September 2019
Location: Washington DC, USA.
