Arctic Mayor Forum

The Arctic is home to 4 million people spread over a vast and sparsely populated area. The locals of the Arctic face unique challenges in terms of a changing climate and the impacts on traditional livelihoods. There are also great opportunities in the arctic and new possibilities. 

Our future in the Arctic are often discussed at international high-level meetings, without involving the local level. Arctic communities needs to handle the increased international interests from India, Singapore and China. The discussion often ends up either in two scenarios, to protect the arctic or in terms of extracting the raw materials. The people living in the here has a different view on the development we wish to see in the Arctic.  

Arctic mayors will give us an insight about their reality, opportunities and opportunities and problems from the local perspective. 

Organised by Tromsø Kommune
