THIS IS AN ALARM CALL

“This is an alarm call. An urgent warning coming straight to you. An alarm call sounding for cities facing wildfires, blazing heat and unbearable droughts. Because the world has never been this warm in more than 2000 years.”

Narrated by Rainn Wilson, this video highlights the vital role the Arctic plays in all our lives.

MAKING SENSE OF CLIMATE CUES

Why are dead red fish important? Professor Gail Whiteman’s talk draws on her research to explore how climate innovators can help rally us around common solutions and contribute to positive tipping points for climate action.

UNPACKING THE POLAR CRISIS

Watch Professor Gail Whiteman speak on the polar crisis at the World Economic Forum in Davos, January 17, 2023.

The poles are warming up to four times faster than the rest of the planet, destabilizing permafrost, ancient glaciers and sea ice. As such, the Arctic and the Antarctic are the Earth’s “canary in the coalmine”.

Explore the connection between the health of the poles and the health of the planet and how Indigenous communities are promoting harmony with nature in their way of life.

Watch the full session here – with Johan Rockström, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, Gail Whiteman and Aslak Holmberg.

Risk Webinar with Deloitte

In July 2023 we hosted a webinar on Data and Climate Risk Management, co-hosted by Deloitte Africa and Arctic Basecamp. Watch it back and learn how data can help us understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and Arctic disruption on the world’s economy and society. Develop a greater understanding and how to better assess widely unconsidered risks to enable more informed decision making and forward planning.

Head to the webinar and hear from experts in the risk and sustainability field.
