ANCHORAGE — In less than a week, hundreds of scientists from around the world will be in Fairbanks to talk about Arctic issues.
The 10-day Arctic Science Summit kicks off this weekend at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The yearly gathering brings together international organizations and scientists involved in Arctic research.
“A lot of climate change discussions I think in Fairbanks, but also how to improve the economic conditions of people living in the north, and stewardship of the environment,” Institute of the North’s Nils Andreassen said of the event.
Alaskans are invited to attend the summit on tuesday at UAF. It will also be streamed online.
