Experienced in working with global decision-makers for more than a decade, Watt-Cloutier offers a new model for 21st century leadership.

The Arctic Council and One Health: Advancing Scientific Cooperation via a Diplomatic Platform

The United States has co-led (with Canada and Finland) an Arctic Council project called One Arctic, One Health since 2015. The project aims to develop a circumpolar network to share information, conduct exercises and collaborate on investigations of One Health phenomena. The Arctic Council is a diplomatic body but has spurred One Health scientific cooperation.
Speakers on the panel will discuss how the council works, how it can advance Arctic One Health and how to continue collaborations after the council's project ends. Panelists represent a variety of countries and disciplines.
