SIOI – Rome | Tuesday 1st October 2019, h.9.00 am – 5.00 pm

SIOI – UNA Italy and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Italy, in collaboration with the High North Center for Business and Governance – Nord University (Bodø), launch the International Symposium “Arctic connections: A trust building Arctic cooperation on Energy, Security and Blue Economy” sponsored by E-Geos and Generali.

Arctic States and Observers will be invited to participate and discuss pressing issues relating to sustainable development through Arctic infrastructure and communication, national interests and energy opportunities. The aim of the Conference, which will be paneled by international experts, is to create synergies between the human population and environmental reactions, with a specific focus on the Arctic region. In addition to scientific cooperation, the Observer States, like Italy, can play a key role in raising awareness beyond the Arctic Circle and drawing attention to the importance Arctic climate change, and how it can affect areas outside of the Arctic.

For strengthening relations between Italy, other Observer States and the Arctic States, SIOI organizes, in collaboration with the Royal Norwegian Embassy, the United States Embassy to Italy and the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, the first Arctic Awareness Week that encompasses all aspects of the Arctic region including the environment, sustainable development, economy and inter-state cooperation. The Arctic Awareness Week is composed by two large events: Arctic Connections and ZeroHackathon on Oceans and Poles.
