The concept of Think & Talk is about turning the audience into participants rather than spectators. The aim of this event will be to create an interactive dialogue between speakers sharing ideas about the Arctic and Climate Action perspectives and the audience

What role does the Arctic play in the Global Climate System? Given the importance of the Arctic, why is there a global disconnect with the Arctic in terms of playing an important part of the global dialogue?

The event will also showcase a special preview of the REARCTIC architectural projection show on the Oslo Opera House in 2020.
