Although modern large-scale mining takes environmental precautions, challenges prevail - in particular when mines are opened in the vulnerable Arctic environment. Likewise, the importance of social, cultural and economic dimensions is magnified when acting in Greenland. One challenge for the large country with the small and scattered population is to set the scene for international players: the importance of learning from experiences of past mining operations in Greenland, as well as from neighbors in the north, is evident.

The Artek Event 2013 offers the opportunity for participants from industry, the public sector and the science community to present, discuss and exchange experience.
