Building resilience in a rapidly transforming Arctic requires adaptive and innovative thinking, collaboration, intersectionality, and strong engagement at the local level. To achieve this, youth voices are essential. This Study Group will explore ways to collaboratively build youth leadership capacity, elevate Indigenous voices and foster intergenerational cooperation with the aim of building resilience in Arctic communities.

Arctic Initiative Study Group: Ocean Conservation and Policy Innovation

Wed., Mar. 10, 2021 - Wed., Apr. 7, 2021

Online

As climate change rapidly transforms the Arctic, the ocean at its center becomes a point of focus: melting sea ice enables increased marine traffic; ice-dependent species are migrating or dying; fisheries shift and with them economies of subsistence. These changes can mean risk or opportunity for different stakeholders.

This study group will use Arctic Ocean change as a case study to outline the environmental policy process and build participants understanding of how to effectively engage in the climate and oceans policy space.
