Arctic Futures Symposium: 2014 edition

Once again, Arctic stakeholders and high-profile policymakers will gather in Brussels on the 14th and 15th of October for the 5th edition of the Arctic Futures Symposium. Held at the Residence Palace in the European Quarter of Brussels, the 2014 symposium will focus on "The Arctic, its peoples, and its economies".

The Arctic and its inhabitants are facing several important changes and challenges, and the Arctic Futures Symposium aims to seek solutions to the challenges through dialogue. Over the course of seven roundtable sessions and a series of keynote presentations, nearly 50 speakers will contribute their knowledge and understanding to discuss issues related to the Arctic’s diverse inhabitants and the economies of this increasingly important region of the planet.

In addition to discussing issues of great importance for the Circumpolar North, a photo exhibition sponsored by Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society will be held in the Atrium of the Residence Palace throughout the duration of the event.

Arctic Futures is a free event, but we have limited seating capacity for the event. The only way to guarantee a spot at the symposium is register via the Arctic Futures website. A few dozen seats remain available at writing of this news; however this is not likely to be the case for long.
