THE GEOPOLITICS OF THE ARCTIC

TRANSFORMATION & GLOBAL POWERS

February 19, 20, 21, 2021

The 2021 Camden Conference will explore the Arctic, one of the world’s least-known regions. The Arctic already is undergoing dramatic, irreversible changes traceable to global warming, and as these changes impact the pace of climate change, they forewarn of the challenges ahead for human, animal and plant habitats in this and other regions.

We will examine how this transformation of the Arctic is creating a new arena for global power and competition. With the retreating ice mass will come new opportunities to pursue exploration and extraction of vast resources. Will there be unregulated competition, or cooperation among governments and industries? What kinds of security challenges will come with ice-free borders? The territories of eight nations extend into the Arctic, but others —especially China— will assert rights of access and passage. Open waters will make shipping between Pacific and Atlantic ports much cheaper. What could all this mean for Maine with its accessible northern ports, maritime industry, and vulnerable location on a rising ocean?

Please plan to join us on this voyage into the future of global affairs in the Arctic and our planet.

WANT TO HELP THE CAMDEN OPERA HOUSE?

Camden Opera House Seat Fundraiser

Complete the Seats!

The Camden Opera House needs your help: they want the folks in the balcony of the Camden Opera House to be just as comfortable as the folks in the orchestra seats (especially for longer programs like the Camden Conference and the Camden International Film Festival). They are working with the Maine State Prison upholstery shop to make 187 attractive and durable cushions to be installed on the balcony seats – the inmates are trained to do excellent work, and some of the proceeds will help prison families. Thank you for your generous donation to this chair-ity.
