Longyearbyen
Longyearbyen is one of the Northernmost settlements in the world, and is the hub for numerous polar expeditions. Recently, Svalbard has been hitting the news for being a pioneer not only in polar exploration, but also for its ambition of becoming a carbon neutral community. Using Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology, Svalbard hopes to attain this goal within 2025. This will involve the completion of a new coal fired power plant and carbon storage in geological formations. This makes Svalbard a natural host for this workshop.
