Side events

Side events are organised in tandem with the symposium to create and foster connections between Arctic stakeholders and the general public in other ways.

This year the symposium partners plan to hold the 3rd annual Arctic Shorts film evening at BOZAR (conditions permitting). The event will feature the work of several Arctic filmmakers. More information about this event will be posted in the Side Events section of this website as it becomes available.
