The Arctic is often seen as an inhospitable, unexplored area, yet people have lived there for 1000s of years. As the region heats up, so do discussions surrounding the exploration and potential exploitation of arctic resources. Join us for a panel discussion on 2nd December with arctic researchers, ecologists and explorers as they debate current research and commercial exploration of the arctic region.
Host: Helen Czerski, first and foremost a physicist, but also an oceanographer, presenter, and author.
The Panel: The panel includes Klaus Dodds, Professor of Geopolitics at Royal Holloway University of London, Claire Warrior, Senior Curator (Exhibitions) at Royal Museums Greenwich, Bob Baxter, a biologist at the University of Durham and Michael Bravo who, early in his career, travelled to the Arctic to take state-of-the-art satellite communications to the world’s highest altitudes.
Date: Monday 2nd December
Time: 7:00pm to 8.30pm
Venue: The Theatre, The Royal Institution, London
The evening will centre around discussions surrounding the exploration and potential exploitation of arctic resources and should provide a lively debate about current research and commercial exploration of the arctic region.
