You are invited you to come back often to check out the latest developments. On the new OOKPIK.ORG, you can:

  • Create your own profile and look at the profiles of others
  • Blog about issues that concern you or share stories
  • Browse shared pictures from the Arctic and share your own
  • Start and contribute to discussion threads
  • Get connected and make friends with likeminded Northerners of your own age
  • Read about current affairs and other issues that happen in the Arctic
  • Learn about opportunities in the Arctic—internships, events, education and more!
  • Subscribe to our Arctic Future newsletter

With your help, IISD is hoping to make OOKPIK.ORG the place for youth with strong ties to the north to connect with one another. Together, we can build a stronger, more united, more resilient Arctic.

IISD hopes you enjoy the new website and find it useful. Your suggestions and ideas are always welcome -- please contact them at
