Emerging Leaders – the Leadership program under Arctic Frontiers for young professionals
Emerging Leaders is an early-career and mentoring program in the Arctic for young professionals from the academic, industry and policy sector. The program brings together leaders and mentors, and indigenous, business, and policy representatives, to tell the Arctic stories in an educational journey through Northern Norway. Through training, educational and cultural activities, and the contributions of competent and committed partners, the Emerging Leaders program serves as an international and cross-cultural platform for dialogue and exchange to support the arctic leaders of the future.
About the program
The Emerging Leaders program runs annually and invites around 30 international candidates to participate. The full program is an immersive 7-day experience, which includes a 5-day journey throughout the Norwegian Arctic. The journey starts in Bodø, continues to the Lofoten islands, and ends in Tromsø. Along this trip, the participants will meet with various mentors and representatives of different sectors and engage in contemporary discussions and workshops on environment, resource management, security, the development of business and technology in the Arctic. The program finishes off with the 2-day attendance of Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø. Here, the participants will make their own contribution to the conference and engage with high-level Arctic representatives.
