Regional development in a changing Arctic

The 2015 symposium looked at regional development in the Circumpolar North, with a focus on various aspects of blue growth, innovation, and environmental security. There was also a special session on the role of Arctic Council observer states and organisations. Those who were not able to attend can watch each of the sessions on the Arctic Futures Symposium VIMEO channel. Speaker presentations can be found on the Arctic Futures Symposium 2015 Speaker Deck account.

We would like to thank again all speakers and symposium partners for their invaluable contributions to making this year's symposium a success!

“We actually learned that science alone does not solve a problem. We have to translate our science and talk to people who make policy.”

“By selecting topical issues Arctic Futures has become a very useful meeting place for a variety of persons engaged in Arctic affairs”
