Meanwhile, on the North Pole...

Sean Desjardins, Christoph Humrich and others

The world's climate is changing all over the globe. One of the most visible consequences is the melting sea ice on the North Pole, causing the sea level to rise around the world. But what are the local changes that the melting sea ice brings about on the North Pole? How does climate change affect the Arctic ecosystems? What are the consequences for the local and indigenous population? The melting ice also creates a geopolitical shift by opening up new shipping lanes and possibly new oil wells. What are the economic outcomes for the area? And who does the North Pole actually belong to? 

A conversation with Sean Desjardins, Postdoctoral Researcher Anthropology at the UG, on long-term human-environment relationships; indigenous and settler history and archaeology across the circumpolar Arctic; and Christoph Humrich, Assistant Professor International Relations and Political Science at the UG, on governance, geopolitics and security in the Arctic; and Annette Scheepstra, Social Scientist, Arctic Centre coordinator of external collaboration and expedition guide in Polar areas; moderated by Thandeka Kramer-Wolf.

In Kenniscafé we talk about current themes with Groningen scientists and researchers. Kenniscafé is organised in collaboration with Science LinX en Forum Groningen and is supported by het Akkoord van Groningen.

Klimaatverandering maakt de stad een kwetsbaar gebied; bij hevige regenbuien kan het water soms moeilijk weg en met toenemende warmte vormen steden een soort hitte-eilanden van
