“Arctic Futures brought together a lot of new faces, not the regular crowd. It has a role to play in raising awareness on what’s happening in the Arctic. I found it to be very beneficial.”

Tom Barry - Former Executive Secretary, CAFF, Arctic Council
Konrad Steffen

“We actually learned that science alone does not solve a problem. We have to translate our science and talk to people who make policy.”

Konrad Steffen - Director, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research
