CN Forum: Putting the Arctic in Plain Sight  (Special Events)

Join Dr. Lawson Brigham as he discusses the Arctic and its critical stage of global importance.

A changing Arctic has long drawn the attention of environmental scientists and those across the world who are interested in supply chain logistics, community sustainability and geopolitics. These dynamics present opportunity for some, but unfamiliar challenges for many.

The discussion will cover research needs, current dynamics that affect people living in the Arctic and across the world and how the research of Dr. Brigham and the scholars at MSU addresses the needs of the Artic.

Registration and breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m. with an 8:30 a.m. program start.
