The Arctic Futures Symposium - 20 November 2017

The 2017 symposium focused on smart and sustainable investment in the Arctic's future. Topics discussed included: the EU's engagement with the Arctic, Arctic research cooperation, advances and accomplishments in sustainably developing Northern communities, education and economic opportunities for Arctic residents, and the Arctic bioeconomy as an example of an important sustainable sector for entrepreneurs and innovators.

We look forward to welcoming you again to Brussels next autumn!

“Arctic Futures brought together a lot of new faces, not the regular crowd. It has a role to play in raising awareness on what’s happening in the Arctic. I found it to be very beneficial.”

Tom Barry - Executive Secretary, CAFF, Arctic Council

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

Konrad Steffen - Director, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research
