“By selecting topical issues Arctic Futures has become a very useful meeting place for a variety of persons engaged in Arctic affairs”

Olav Orheim - Chairman, GRID-Arendal
Konrad Steffen

“We actually learned that science alone does not solve a problem. We have to translate our science and talk to people who make policy.”

Konrad Steffen - Director, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research
