IPF-UK Charity

The Trustees of the IPF-UK (Meredith Hooper, Gigi Johnson-Amin, Alain Hubert, Sir Andrew Burns and Stephen Cox CVO) formally registered the Charity so that it becomes fully operational in activities and fund raising. The IPF-UK will be encouraged to organise local and regional events and activities as per the mission statement of the IPF and the objectives of the IPF-UK.

On the agenda was the finalization of the Memorandum and Articles of Association for the UK charity, as well as the idea for an IPF sponsored conference entitled 'Arctic Futures' provisionally set to take place in London in the fall of 2006.

Concentrating on the Arctic Ocean and its future in the face of global warming, the conference would host notable speakers from the science, environmental and diplomatic communities.
