Arctic Frontiers 2022
Arctic Frontiers started out in 2006 assembling the first global scientific conference on economic, societal and environmental sustainable growth in the north. In May 2022, we will arrange the 16th conference with the theme Pathways. The conference has a pan-arctic perspective and builds new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups.
