UBA invites to participate in an Expert Workshop in Berlin on 24 October 2018. Presentations and discussions in Working Groups aim to explore options to support environmental protection of the High North from afar. International and national guests are invited as speakers to discuss environmental policy options to support Arctic, mainly addressed by more sustainable development.

The Expert Workshop aims to enable exchange and discussion on how Arctic Council observers may engage strategically and practically in Arctic environmental protection. The exchange between states that are active in the High North, indigenous communities as well as people from economy, research and civil society, may provide ideas for sustainable development of the region with special focus on environmental protection. 

After an introductory presentation of a German view on environmental protection in the Arctic, perspectives of other stakeholders are very welcome. So, several representatives of Arctic Council and observers will have the chance to present their views. A short overview on environmental impacts of shipping in the Arctic and the Polar Code will also be presented. As special topics in the afternoon climate change and air pollution control, shipping and tourism are to be discussed in parallel Working Groups.
