Aberdeen scholars were in Portland, Maine, last week as delegates to the 2022 UArctic Assembly. Alumnus Karla Williamson served on a high-level panel on 'The New Future of the Arctic' with Maine Senator Angus S King Jr. on the transition to a post-carbon future which sits on the shoulders of Arctic indigenous peoples. Professor Anderson raised concern over the 'pausing' of the membership of Russian scientists in the institution. Dr Arruda proposed the global institutionalisation of the SDGs.
The next UArctic Assembly will be in Quebec City.
