Arctic Basecamp at Davos 2018


The second Arctic Basecamp at Davos in 2018 was made possible with the financial support of the Fort Foundation and the National Science Foundation. 

The 2018 Arctic Basecamp was produced in partnership with the UN Global Goals and provided an effective vehicle for communicating environmental change, and its potential economic impacts, to global leaders and decision-makers, and communicating solutions.

This event utilised the Arctic Basecamp tents as both a work and meeting space during the day and sleeping quarters for the scientific team. The Arctic scientists and logistics team camped at the Basecamp for four nights.

The blog written for the World Economic Forum's Agenda, by the scientists working at this Basecamp, was the most widely shared WEF blog of the week commencing 5th March 2018: The Arctic recently sent us a powerful message about climate change
