On September 28, 2016, the White House will host science ministers and representatives from indigenous groups to reflect on Arctic science, monitoring and data sharing. In an op-ed in the publication Arctic Deeply, Director of the Institute of Arctic Studies Ross A. Virginia and Univeristy of Alaska Vice Chancellor Michael Sfraga offer their view on the advancement of scientific study in the Arctic.
"We believe the White House Arctic Science Ministerial on September 28, the first event of its kind, is a special opportunity to bring attention to and focus on the ever-evolving challenges and opportunities facing citizens of the North and throughout the world. It’s a chance to put science ministers, Indigenous leaders, researchers and policy makers into the same room to make sure that we tackle the right issues, gather and share the right information and create the right tools so that Arctic communities and researchers will work together to meet sustainability challenges."
