Arctic Matters Day at the National Academy of Sciences
October 15, 2015
By Jessica Rohde
This symposium is part of an ongoing initiative of the National Academy of Sciences Polar Research Board to expand public understanding of why the dramatic changes affecting the Arctic region ultimately matter to us all [http://nas-sites.org/arctic/]. The agenda features engaging presentations and discussions with top Arctic science and policy experts, and displays and interactive exhibits that illustrate Arctic change and its global impacts. The event is free and open to the public. There are sponsorship opportunities, and a call for exhibitor applications (by Oct.31, 2015). Audience space is limited, so register today; and please encourage your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to participate as the goal is to reach well beyond the small circle of specialists who typically attend Arctic-themed events in the Washington, D.C. area. The U.S. Arctic Research Commission is helping to sponsor this event.
