Chp 4 – Geo – gérer les ressources terrestres : Les mondes arctiques

Geography – DNL – may 2012

Arctic issues in the way of Sustainable development
The Arctic needs our attention;

The extent of sea ice decline means that we have to rethink our development and in particular the Arctic area development.

The world is concerned; the issue is global.

How can we achieve sustainable development?
Playground:

  • With the prospect of an Arctic Charter, the Arctic Council has organized an international meeting.

Different kinds of actors (inhabitants, activities, NGO, Countries) are involved in this project.

  • You represent one of those groups.

What would be your priority in terms of actions or laws? Which decision would you recommend?

To this aim, you have to prepare arguments and select one or two actions or principles (laws) that you think necessary or evident in an Arctic international Charter.

You are a member of:


  • An indigenous people (Inuit - Eskimo – Sami – Russian indigenous people)

  • An eco organization (WWF – Greenpeace)

  • A scientific laboratory

  • A mine or energy or tourism company

  • A local government ( Russia, United States, Canada, Denmark (Greenland and Faroe islands), Norway, Iceland, Sweden)


Activity:

  • You have to prepare a paper (one sheet maximum) to help you in the debate organized afterwards.

In this paper you will make clear:

  • Who you are representing

  • What interests, stakes you defend

  • What necessary measure, main step or emergency action must be taken

  • What you want the Arctic Council to adopt as a priority in the Charter

  • If possible, a few selected documents that you could show during the debate (maps, pictures) and vocabulary.




  • To help you: several documents are in the network folder called “arctic charter” and different links and websites in the exercise-file.
