“CHANGES IN THE ARCTIC: Melting Ice Means New Challenges and Opportunities” is the title of a SACU (Swedish-American Cultural Union) luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 29 with speaker Per Augustsson of Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies/Center for Transatlantic Relations in Washington, D.C.
MR. AUGUSTSSON will discuss changes in the Arctic, which produces many questions, such as who owns the Arctic and the resources beneath the ice and water; how the changing climate will affect fish and marine mammals; and who will regulate shipping and guarantee security in the North.

Parking is available on the street or in the Channel Inn parking garage. The Metro Green Line stop Waterfront Station is located nearby.
