Arctic Basecamp at Davos

The Arctic has been described as the canary in the coalmine for the health of the global environment. It is a complex region that is experiencing unprecedented change.

The Arctic Basecamp at Davos concept was created by Pentland Centre Director Gail Whiteman, as a vehicle to bring this message to global leaders. With co-organisers Jeremy Wilkinson (British Antarctic Survey), Konrad Steffen (WSL, Switzerland) and Jürg Schweizer (WSL/SLF, Switzerland) the event was brought to the World Economic Forum 2017, calling for action from global leaders to apply the 2017 Davos theme, Responsive and Responsible Leadership, to address global risks from Arctic change.

Following the success of this event, Arctic Basecamp at Davos 2018 was again co-organised with Jeremy Wilkinson (British Antarctic Survey) in partnership with Global Goals, and supported by the Fort Foundation and the National Science Foundation.
