Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM AKDT
Registration: Online registration for this event has closed.
Event Description:

Learn more about the Arctic from a social, political and economic point of view. Importantly for Anchorage, the Arctic covers most of the state and intersects directly with Anchorage business interests. Anchorage is one of the main gateways to the Arctic and a critical logistics and communications hub. With the end of the U.S. Chairmanship of the Arctic Council, Alaska faces new options in addressing the challenges and opportunities of the Arctic. Learn more about what the state is doing and what Alaskans and the Anchorage community can do to advance Alaska's interests.

PLUS! A special presentation from Kelly Larson of the Alaska State Fair and a chance to win 2 General Admission Concert tickets to any concert of your choice with Fair admission, plus a Me+3 four pack of admission tickets.

Nils Andreassen, Executive Director of the Institute of the North, has a degree in Peace and Development from the University of Bradford in England and his background in rural and international development, Alaska and Arctic policy issues fit well within the Institute’s mission to inform public policy as it relates to natural resource development, and specifically to result in improved living and economic conditions for northern residents. The Institute has a legacy working on Arctic infrastructure priorities and policies that serve to strengthen and connect northern communities.
