Arctic Interchange

Alaska’s science, policy and business community have come together to celebrate the successes of the U.S. Chairmanship, toast the future of the Finnish Chairmanship, and recognize all the hard work still to do in meeting high goals of environmental protection, sustainable development, inclusion of indigenous peoples and international cooperation.  

Alaska is the heart of America’s Arctic, and Fairbanks the golden heart of Alaska. Arctic Interchange is hosted in a community that serves as a critical nexus of outstanding university research and science, indigenous leadership, active economic development and innovative policy. Alaska’s contributions to and priorities for the Arctic region will be highlighted throughout the Arctic Interchange, and participants can expect to learn more about the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF): America’s Arctic university and Alaska’s research university.

Fairbanks itself acts as one of Alaska’s “gateways” to the Arctic, where local business and tourism drive opportunity and facilitate northern connections. Events will emphasize Alaskan expertise that is deep and diverse as it relates to social and physical sciences, cold climate design, remote health and energy delivery, engineering and construction, oceans and fisheries science and management, and climate science.
