UArctic will be well represented at the event, with President Lars Kullerud and some of our Student Ambassadors speaking. The event also coincides with the launch of a new special issue of the UArctic Shared Voices magazine that UArctic has produced with support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the 20-year anniversary of the Arctic Council. Several of the contributors to the magazine, such as Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende and Senior Arctic Officials Chair David Balton, will also be speaking.

Copies of the magazine are available at the UArctic stand, located near the university book store.

The discussion forum Arctic Frontiers Plus was established in 2014 as part of the Arctic Frontiers conference, with a view to focusing on the further development of the Arctic Council.
