Arctic Basecamp was created by Executive Director, Professor Gail Whiteman (Professor of Sustainability at the University of Exeter, UK), “to speak science to power”. It is a vehicle to bring a message of global risk from Arctic change to world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Arctic Basecamp tent is now an established feature at the WEF Annual Meeting in Davos and has also pitched at COP26 in Glasgow, Glastonbury Festival and the Arctic Circle Assembly. In 2023 it arrived in the metaverse as one of five founding partners of the World Economic Forum’s Global Collaboration Village where scientific data and consultation was provided for the Climate Tipping Points Hub.

Professor Whiteman is supported by a small team of staff. More information can be found at arcticbasecamp.org.

As well as the Global Climate Risks Platform, Arctic Basecamp has also developed Climate Basecamp – to speak science to culture. Climate Basecamp uses five cultural pillars as a way to talk about climate: music, food, entertainment, sport and fashion. It has two main campaign focus – Save the… things you love and Performing Hope – the antidote to climate anxiety.
