Arctic Basecamp

Bringing the global risks from polar change to the world's most powerful audiences.


Arctic Basecamp is a unique science communications platform where our goal is to �speak science to power� in order to spark bold climate action. Arctic Basecamp was created by Executive Director Professor Gail Whiteman (Professor of Sustainability at the University of Exeter, UK), as a vehicle to bring a message of global risk from Arctic change to world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Arctic Basecamp tent is now an established feature at the WEF Annual Meeting in Davos and has also pitched at COP26 in Glasgow, Glastonbury Festival and the Arctic Circle Assembly. In May 2022 we launched a brand new online tool, the Arctic Risk Platform, that consolidates the latest science and data on the global risks triggered by Arctic climate change.
