"Since its inception, the Arctic Encounter has strategically sought out bold and innovative leaders to come together to think critically and speak candidly beyond the comfort of talking points. There are no limitations to how the Arctic might change or develop in the coming decades. Let us be brave, let us dream, and let us learn from past mistakes."

Quote 4


"It is heartening to see a growing interest in the Arctic in policy circles, but much still needs to be done to help people outside of the Arctic appreciate that the rapid changes in that region are having global impacts. Among the plethora of meetings concerning Arctic issues, the Arctic Encounter Symposia standout as especially well-run opportunities for politicians, economists, scientists, indigenous people, industry and—most importantly—young people to share insights. The Arctic Encounter recognizes the importance of understanding and responding holistically to rapid change in the Arctic and, simultaneously gives strong voice to tomorrow’s leaders."

— Brendan P. Kelly, Executive Director, Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH); former Assistant Director for Polar Science, The Office of Science and Technology Policy, The White House; former Chief Scientist, Monterey Bay Aquarium
