Our common future ocean in a changing climate

February 5, 2020. 15.00-16.00. The Academic Quarter (Kvarteret), Bergen, Norway.

Oceans cover 70% of the Earths’ surface, produce over 50% of the world’s oxygen, regulate our weather and climate patterns, and provides energy, food, medicine, and recreation. However, this invaluable shared resource is under threat due to human-induced ocean warming and acidification, expansion of oceanic dead zones, and unsustainable fishing. Safeguarding our common ocean for future generations is a shared responsibility and a matter of global urgency.

Arctic Frontiers Science Poster – Knowledge-based development in the Arctic

January 28, 2020. 16:00. Arbeidskontoret room, Clarion Hotel the Edge, Tromsö, Norway

The AE Bergen Knowledge Hub, an associated partner of Artic Frontiers, is organizing a Poster presentation at the Arctic Frontiers Science Poster – Knowledge-based development in the Arctic:
Making sense of science for policy under conditions of complexity and uncertainty – MASOS

Science advice for policy: who asks, who gives, and who listens?

January 27, 2020. 18:15 – 19:15. Clarion Hotel the Edge, Tromsö, Norway.

Starting from 2020, Academia Europaea Bergen Knowledge Hub is an associated partner of Arctic Frontiers.

In this event we will bring together a panel (TBA) with experience from science advice, policy making and NGOs. Are there sufficient mechanisms available in Norway and other countries to ensure that political decisions are based on the best available and independent scientific knowledge? What are the specific needs in an Arctic context? The panel will debate challenges and knowledge gaps relevant to the radical changes needed in order to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and what systems need to be in place for policy to be anchored in scientific evidence and scientific thinking.
