About Arctic Futures

Every autumn since 2010, the International Polar Foundation and its partners have organised a multinational, multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder conference on the Arctic.

Held in Brussels and free of charge to make discussions on Arctic issues accessible to as many Arctic stakeholders as possible, the annual Arctic Futures Symposium brings together local and national policymakers, Arctic indigenous peoples, natural and social scientists, academics, and representatives of industries operating in or with interests in the Arctic.

Every year, participation has remained strong, reflecting the increasing interest in the Arctic.
