The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe. What this means to the environment and people of the Arctic is a major question that will be debated at the 2nd Arctic Science Ministerial. This official side-event aims to raise awareness among Arctic specialists and the general public about the urgent need for important decisions and coordinated action among all nations, be they Arctic neighbouring states or not. It will cover the regional and dynamical aspects of Arctic change, to be followed by presentations of two indigenous personalities from Greenland and the Russian Federation.
