Poland invited to the First White House Arctic Science Ministerial, 28 September 2016

On September 28, 2016—after the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s historic trip to Alaska—the US Administration will host the first-ever Arctic Science Ministerial. Poland will be represented by the Vice-Minister of Science, Prof. Teresa Czerwińska. 

The White House Arctic Science Ministerial will bring together ministers of science, chief science advisors, and other high-level officials from countries around the world, as well as representatives from indigenous groups, to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic science, research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing. The goals of the event are to advance promising, near-term science initiatives and create a context for increased international scientific collaboration on the Arctic over the longer term.

Specifically, the Ministerial will focus on four key themes:

  1. Arctic Science Challenges and their Regional and Global Implications; 
  2. Strengthening and Integrating Arctic Observations and Data Sharing; 
  3. Applying Expanded Scientific Understanding of the Arctic to Build Regional Resilience and Shape Global Responses; 
  4. Arctic Science as a Vehicle for STEM Education and Citizen Empowerment.
