Discussion “What the Arctic Council decides”
Arctic — the underdeveloped Arctic is becoming more accessible. The release of the Northern Sea Route from the ice is coming, and new technologies allow us to extract oil and gas on the Arctic shelf. There is the conflict of interests of indigenous peoples, developed countries, scientists and environmentalists in the Arctic. The Arctic Council unites countries that have Arctic territories. Experts talk about the goals of the council, what the council is doing, about the agreements and disagreements, whether China will join the Arctic Council, what Canada did when it was chairman of the Council, and what Russia will do when it becomes chairman of the council this year. And we will also talk about how to get a job in the Arctic Council, whether it is necessary to move beyond the Arctic Circle for this, and why it is necessary?
