Climate change and technological advances are opening up the Arctic for exploitation by the world - or so we are told. But what do we really know about development risks and rewards in the far north? What realities of Arctic environmental conditions are rarely described? What Arctic social and political conditions are frequently bypassed? What about the people who live in the region who have rights and interests? This panel explores the risks and rewards regarding the so-called 'Arctic Gold Rush' for resources and development.

Panel Discussion: 18:00-19:30 Drinks Reception: 19:30-21:00
