Emerging Leaders

Are you an emerging leader in the Arctic? 

Call for new candidates: Arctic Frontiers Emerging Leaders is now open for new candidates from business, public sector and academia!

Arctic Frontiers Emerging Leaders, 22 – 28 January 2020, is an Arctic early carrier and mentoring program in the High North of Norway for young scientists and professionals with special interest in Arctic topics. If you are an aspiring Arctic leader under 35 years and want to learn more about Arctic security, Arctic economy and Arctic environment, you are welcome to apply!

Emerging Leaders invite 30 selected candidates from different countries to participate in a blend of technical, social and cultural events accompanied by mentors from business, politics and academia. The program takes place in the Norwegian Arctic and starts in the city of Bodø, then continues onboard the coastal cruise M/S Hurtigruten to Lofoten and ends in Tromsø, “the gateway to the Arctic”.

The Emerging Leaders will explore topics and adventures that are specific to the Arctic mindset and engage in crucial and contemporary discussions on environment, resource management, security, the development of business and technology in the Arctic.

At the Arctic Frontiers Plenary in Tromsø, the mentors will challenge the Emerging Leaders to present a professional view on the Arctic. What are the suggestions and solutions to Arctic opportunities and challenges? How should we best define Arctic sustainability, potentials and vulnerabilities?

Be prepared to make close friends across a variety of pan-Arctic regions and professions.

The participation fee is 35.000 NOK + VAT.
