An international think tank based in London, England, dedicated to issues related to the Arctic and Antarctic, launched a new website July 11.
polarconnection.org is intended to highlight the Polar Research and Policy Initiative’s objectives, showcase its research output, engage with local and global audiences and inform users and partners about latest developments both within the organization and in the polar regions, according to the think tank’s news release.
Themes to be explored on the site include natural environment, maritime environment, built environment, indigenous peoples, arts, culture and heritage, and geopolitics and security. Industry-related themes include energy, mining, shipping, fisheries, tourism and information and communication technologies.
“It is very much our aim to not just invite the world to the Arctic, but take the Arctic to the world,” said founder and director Dwayne Menezes.
