Regional Development & Food Security in the Arctic: The Role of Geothermal Energy


Upcoming Webinar: 20th October 2020, 16:00 - 18:00 GMT


Icelandic Arctic Cooperation Network, Website


The event draws on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Icelandic Arctic Council Chairmanship (2019-2021) theme on Climate and Green Energy Solutions, and Iceland‘s Climate Action Plan for 2018 – 2030. The webinar brings together experts and stakeholders to discuss the role of geothermal energy in municipal and regional development, and its application for food production. Local food production can both stimulate regional economic and societal growth, and enhance the security of its inhabitants. The main objectives are to:

  • Promote the importance of renewable sources in relation to food security, and share knowledge of sustainable food production in cold climates.

  • Create an international network of experts and stakeholders, including communities, academics, and the public and private sectors, with the goal of exploring opportunities for future collaboration.

  • Outline strategy for moving towards sustainable development and renewable energy solutions in northern communities. (The summary from the session would include ideas to that effect.)
