Breaking the Ice, COP25 Panel hosted by the WWF Arctic Programme

This coming Thursday, December 12, WWF’s Arctic Programme will host a panel at COP25, exploring how to bring young scientists and Indigenous youth to the decision-making table in the Arctic.

Around the world, youth are demanding that governments act against climate change. The recent IPCC Special Report on Oceans and Cryosphere (SROCC) emphasizes the need to integrate local and Indigenous knowledge with the best science into our decision-making to effectively address the climate crisis, particularly in the Arctic.

An intergenerational panel

The Arctic is heating up twice as fast as the rest of the planet. This makes integrated decision-making vital in this area. This intergenerational panel will bring together young scientists, Indigenous youth, and leaders to discuss how to transform the way the Arctic is governed and how to adapt to the rapid rate of change taking place in the region.

Panelists will share their experiences living and working in the Arctic. They will talk about the huge changes taking place and their perspectives, and contributions towards urgent climate action. Together, we will discuss the solutions needed to face the climate emergency.
