The Arctic issue is not local, but global. Global warming in recent years has accelerated the melting of ice and snow in the Arctic region. As economic globalization and regional integration further develops and deepens, the Arctic is gaining global significance for its rising strategic, economic values and those relating to sea passages, natural resources, scientific research, and environmental protection as well.
As young generations and future elites in different disciplines and fields from China and the 8 Arctic countries, our goals on the Arctic are to understand, protect, develop and participate in the governance of the Arctic. To understand Arctic is the first step for protection, development and governance of the Arctic, and thus promotion of sustainable development of the Arctic. To understand the Arctic is to improve the capacity and capability in scientific research on the Arctic, to pursue a deeper understanding and knowledge of the Arctic science, and to explore the natural laws behind its changes and development, thus to create favorable conditions for mankind to better protect, develop, and govern the Arctic.
