What happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic

About Us

What we do

We are a team of Arctic experts and scientists who, for the last three years, have brought the Arctic to the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting at Davos. We set up a real Arctic science basecamp, with an expedition tent which acts as our workplace during the day and our dormitory at night, camping in sub-zero temperatures to bring a message of global risk to the world leaders at the WEF. All scientists volunteer their time.

The Arctic Basecamp at Davos concept was created by Pentland Centre Director Gail Whiteman, as a vehicle to bring this message to global leaders. With co-organiser Dr Jeremy Wilkinson she has brought the event to the World Economic Forum each year from 2017 to 2019, calling for action from global leaders to apply responsive and responsible leadership to address global risks from Arctic change.
