Each week Eye on the Arctic features stories and newsmakers from across the North
Today on the Eye on the Arctic column, we check in on a major international conference that took place this week in the Norwegian Arctic.
Arctic Frontiers was held in the city of Tromso and its stated goal was to discuss development in the North.
The conference ran January 19-24
Politicians who addressed the conference included Canada’s Patrick Borbey, Chair of Arctic Council Senior Arctic Officials, Greenland’s Prime Minister Aleqa Hammond and Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
To find out more about what they said and the reaction to it, Eye on the Arctic’s Eilís Quinn spoke with Deutsche Welle journalist Irene Quaile earlier this week. Quaile also writes Deutsche Welle’s Ice-Blog where she focuses on climate and the North.
