This year’s topic was “Business in the Arctic – The Perspectives of the Young”. Our focus was on what happens in business and societies in the Arctic and what this means, especially for young people.
The first and second days of the conference assumed the perspectives of Norway and shared the Norwegian experiences and understanding of Arctic development from politics, business, and society. Are we good at developing the Norwegian Arctic or High North, and do we have any best practices to share?
The third conference day zoomed out from the Norwegian perspective and directed the discussions towards circumpolar developments. Our focus was on what happens in the Arctic, influenced by politics and/or actions in business and society, and how this affects young people.
