Arctic policy is like biking: To avoid stagnation we need continuous progress. The new Government is listening, has the Arctic high on its agenda and is committed to progress, said State Secretary Eivind Vad Petersson of the Norwegian Ministry of Foregin Affairs.
Together with a host of interesting speakers he attended the event “Arctic Solutions for the Green Shift” in Oslo on November 25th, organized by the High North Dialogue, Kirkeneskonferansen and Arctic Frontiers.
What does the future in the Arctic look like?
Arctic Frontiers had the honour of facilitating a roundtable discussion between Norwegian and Dutch young professionals and the Royal couples of Norway and the Netherlands, at the Fram Museum in Oslo in November.
The theme of the discussion was young people’s thoughts about their life and future in the Arctic.
The 2022 theme of Arctic Frontiers, Pathways, reflects on the choices the Arctic is facing when addressing pressing global challenges. The urgency for action will be discussed in terms of pathways to economic development, sustainability, climate action, security, stability, and respect for science in decision-making.
