2013 Week of the Arctic
Mon, August 12, 2013 - Sun, August 18, 2013
The activities held during the Week remind all of us that America is an Arctic nation because Alaska is an Arctic state. With increased maritime traffic and new opportunities for development come ever-increasing reasons to understand and work toward safe and secure operations both on land and off Alaska’s coast. The Week of the Arctic provides venues for learning more about, and contributing to, an expanding role for Alaska in the Arctic.
Presentations, roundtable discussions and workshops are held as part of the Week of the Arctic, varied in form to reach different audiences and achieve multiple goals. The Robert O. Anderson Sustainable Arctic Award dinner is the signature event for the Week of the Arctic. In recent years, the Award has been given to Red Dog Mine (2012) and Jacob Adams (2011). The award was created in 2000 to recognize individuals and organizations that make outstanding contributions toward sustainable development in the Arctic. Join us as we present CH2M Hill this year's Award. The Week of the Arctic culminates on Sunday, August 18 with a champagne toast in celebration of the Governor Walter J. Hickel Day of the Arctic.
