Presentation

The “Arctic Week” is a one-week international conference that provides transdisciplinary approaches to climate and environmental changes in the Arctic. It aims to provide an overview of the different challenges of the Arctic regions, as understood by Arctic peoples and by researchers. In a desire to pursue the interdisciplinary approach to environmental and climate changes initiated at the first edition, combining human and social sciences, environmental sciences, as well as indigenous peoples and international students, a second edition will be host from the 9th to 13rd of December 2019, Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (27, Rue de la Convention, 75015 Paris).

This second edition is placed under the High Patronage of the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs, chaired by Ségolène Royal, Ambassador for the Poles and coordinated by Dr. Alexandra Lavrillier, Cearc – UVSQ.

Human and Social Sciences and Environmental Sciences, as well as Indigenous and Transdisciplinarity approaches are welcome

The suggested themes includes:

  • Environmental and societal changes (e.g. perceptions and adaptations, impacts on wild life and ecosystems);
  • Indigenous peoples facing changes in climate and in biodiversity (vulnerability, adaptation and resilience);
  • Indigenous knowledge and science collaboration (e.g. community-basedobservatories/community-driven observatories);
  • Circumpolar reindeer herding: co-constructing the future;
  • Narrating the Arctic: internal and external perspectives;
  • Arctic climate: climatology, physics and atmospheric physics (e.g. ozone, polar lows,UV);
  • Climate change and pollution: sources and impacts for the environment and society;
  • Retroactions on climate from Arctic regions via greenhouse gas production;
  • Permafrost degradation under recent climate change (e.g. thermokarst, carbon fate,mitigation);
  • Arctic Hydrology: changes in river dynamics (impact, perception and adaptation);
  • Arctic permafrost landscapes in transition (e.g. landslides, debris flow hazards, riskmanagement);
  • Glacial and paraglacial dynamics;
  • Oceans (e.g. acidification, currents, circulation of PTS/POPS, communities relying onmaritime resources, sea routes);
  • Urban and industrial development in the Arctic;
  • Impact and regulation of Arctic tourism development;
  • Education, transmission, social work and well-being;
  • Youth and gender studies;
  • Science communication and knowledge transfer;
  • Arctic archaeology;
  • Indigenous languages: past, present and transmission;
  • Indigenous creativity (e.g. literature, music, arts, handicrafts);
  • Arctic technologies and innovation (industrial and indigenous);
  • Development and use of Information and Communication Technologies;
  • Energies (renewable, non-renewable and ecological transition);
  • Economic and security issues of global warming for the Arctic;
  • Sustainability assessment of climate policies and the economic conditions for bothlow carbon and blue growth paths in the Arctic;
  • Environmental scarcity and critical natural capital in the Arctic;
  • Governance and rights.
