The Arctic race is heating up.

As the next Arctic Council meeting takes place in 2015, 2014 is a critical year for developments in the High North. We’ve witnessed record low levels of Arctic Ocean sea ice, offshore drilling breakthroughs and setbacks, mining joint-ventures, expanding shipping routes, new observer states, and geostrategic political games. With hundreds of
billions of dollars at stake, how do business, government, indigenous communities and environmentalists navigate these choppy waters?

The Arctic Summit brought together ALL Arctic stakeholders, from mining and hydrocarbon business and investors, Arctic Council members and observer states, to local community representatives and environmental experts to identify the hot opportunities and cold realities of Arctic trade and economic development.
