The Emergence of Arctic Resources: impacts on geopolitics, the green transition and sustainability

Fri 26 May 2023

Lee Hall, Wolfson College

Doors will open at 17:30 with light refreshments. The talk will begin at 18:00.

This event is open to all and will consist of a keynote presentation from Marie Anne, followed by an audience Q&A moderated by Dr Jamie Trinidad.

The warming up of the Arctic generates unprecedented potential for the extraction of its huge natural resources. While some of these resources make the Arctic a perfect incubator for clean energy, increased economic activity represents a huge challenge for sustainability. From a strategic perspective, the increased Arctic economic and commercial potential is attracting global attention, and is having clear geo-economic and geopolitical consequences.

In the talk, Marie Anne discusses the emergence of arctic resources and their impact on geopolitics, the green transition and sustainability.

This event is a collaboration between the Wolfson Law Society, Wolfson Humanities Society and Interdisciplinary Research Hub in Sustainability & Conservation.
