As part of the October Polar Week CKLB radio (Yellowknife, Northwest Territories) hosted a panel discussion on the future of the Arctic on October 8th. Students from around the globe joined this live radio discussion about the complexity of the situation in the Arctic and the conflicts of interest between economic, environmental and social issues. Listeners heard classes around the globe share their concerns about the future of the Arctic and the reactions of a panel of regional elders, permafrost researchers, environmentalists, and politicians. Questions were received from students from Brazil and northern Canada as well as from bloggers in Norway, Antarctica and Greenland.
