MB2: Inspiring Arctic voices through youth

Date: Thursday October 11, 2018

Location: Tieva, Lappia Hall

Time: 13:30-15:00

Arctic youth are the Arctic’s future. The way we engage young people today will determine the prospects for the Arctic’s sustainable development and futures for Arctic biodiversity. To utilize young people’s potential as agents of change requires involving and empowering them in Arctic development, policies and supporting their participation in important forums and discussions. This session allows youth from across the Arctic and beyond, to use their own voices to recall observations of Arctic change, highlight conservation priorities and concerns for Arctic biodiversity, and seek to inspire action to address their unique perspectives. Join a small group of Arctic youth participating in the Arctic Youth Summit to hear their stories. After a series of talks a moderated roundtable discussion will follow.
