The rapid receding of Arctic ice has created social, economic and environmental challenges with global consequences demanding critical and collaborative leadership. Yet even at this critical time, information on the Arctic remains scattered and slim.

Join us in our monthly AVPN gathering to hear more about Arctic Deeply, an initiative that mixes digital information with analysis and top-level dialogues. Arctic Deeply brings together the best insights from a range of partners, creating a community of thinkers who can come together online and offline to reach a greater understanding of Arctic issues.

Main speaker:
Lara Setrakian is the Co-Founder and CEO of News Deeply. She spent more than five years as a foreign correspondent, covering the Middle East for ABC News and Bloomberg Television. She has since focused on the fusion of news and technology; her first platform, Syria Deeply, launched in December 2012 to wide acclaim and was honored with the Excellence in Online Journalism Award by the National Press Foundation. TIME Magazine dubbed Syria Deeply “The Future of News,” while Fast Company said it “outsmarts the news business, redefines crisis coverage.” Fast Company went on to name Setrakian #20 on its list of the 100 Most Creative People in Business.
