8:00 AM – 8:00 PM
The Fletcher Arctic Conference, a TEDx-style event, will showcase the ideas, stories, and initiatives of people who live and work in the Arctic. The conference will bring together inspiring leaders, innovative business people, expert scientists, and artists from the pan-Arctic region. Building on the school’s interdisciplinary approach, Fletcher Arctic VII will be a forum to engage in conversation and spark open and constructive debate between speakers and participants, providing deep insights into this unique and rapidly changing region. We will question the dilemma between economic development, social protection, and environmental conservation in the wake of climate change. We will also think about the diverse ways well-being can be improved in northern communities, while registering socio-cultural dynamics and governance and security issues.
