Contribution of traditional ecological knowledge and modern technologies in a Changing Arctic
Paris, 19 Jun 2019 – 20 Jun 2019

 

  The Arctic region is especially exposed to climate change, undergoing fast-paced transformations. Its natural resources attract all kinds of industries, from fisheries to oil drilling, while local communities are going through important socio-economic changes. How can modern technology, social and biological science work collaboratively with local and indigenous ecological knowledge? 

  Building on the success of the 2016 Franco-Nordic seminar in Tromsø, the Institut français de Norvège and  the Research Council of Norway have decided to further explore topic of « The Changing Arctic ».

  The Paris seminar will address « the contribution of traditional ecological knowledge and modern technologies in a Changing Arctic » through a set of conferences, round-tables and workshops.
