The Arctic Circle, New Assembly For International Cooperation On Arctic Issues To Be Held In Reykjavik, Iceland, October 12-14, 2013

REYKJAVIK, Iceland, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grimsson will announce a new assembly to promote collaboration among Arctic and international partners. The mission of the Arctic Circle is to convene a diverse group of stakeholders in an annual gathering to facilitate dialogue and build relationships to confront the Arctic's greatest challenges.

As the fastest-warming place on Earth, the Arctic is moving to the center of the geopolitical stage. It is playing an increasingly important role in globalization, economic development, energy exploration, environ­mental protection and international security. Various plans for resource utilization and new sea routes linking Asia to Europe and America in a new way have led to an increased focus on the region.

In the past, the region did not matter to the world's decision-makers and was largely forgotten. Now, with sea ice levels at their lowest point in recorded history, the world is waking up to the challenges and opportunities the Arctic presents for its citizens as well as for people in other parts of the world.

Rapid changes in the Arctic have led to a critical need for a new and inclusive international dialogue. To that end, the Arctic Circle will convene for the first time in Iceland at Harpa Reykjavík Concert and Conference Centre on October 12-14, 2013, to discuss issues that impact the global commons, including:

  • Sea ice melt and extreme weather
  • Security implications
  • Fisheries and ecosystem management
  • Shipping and transportation
  • Natural resources

The Arctic Circle will be an open venue for institutions, organizations, forums, think tanks, corporations and public associations to hold their meetings or events without surrendering their independence or decision-making abilities. The assembly will meet in a different Arctic location each year.
