G7 Summit Statements on Securing a Digital Future and the Changing Arctic Ocean

Joint statements from the national science academies of the G7 nations were recently released in advance of the G7 Summit to be held in La Malbaie, Canada, on June 8 and 9, 2018. The statements are intended to inform discussions at the summit.
