Navigating the Arctic's 7Cs with Dr. Mike Sfraga

Thursday | Feb 6th | 5:00 | KTOO Studios: @360

Among many rolls, Fulbright Scholar Dr. Mike Sfraga is the director of the Polar Institute at the Wilson Center, and former Vice chancellor of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. A geographer by training, his work is focused on the changing geography of the Arctic and Antarctic landscapes, Arctic policy, and the impacts and implications of a changing climate on social and political regimes in the Arctic.

In his presentation, he will discuss key drivers, issues, and the dynamics at play in the Arctic - how Alaska could/should fit into the larger geopolitical equation (along with opportunities this presents) and what impacts the larger Arctic dynamics could have for our state.
