In conversation with Arctic visionaries Rosemarie Kuptana, Franklyn Griffiths, and Oran Young and moderated by Tony Penikett.

Since the founding of the Arctic Council 25 years ago, conditions have changed. A sizable number of non-Arctic states and non-governmental organizations have joined the Council as Observers, media coverage has increased, and corporate interests have kept an eye on business opportunities. How might these developments change the operations of the Arctic Council? How can the region’s Indigenous peoples maintain a strong presence in this increasingly crowded field?

Some argue that the “new” Arctic is now part of the global system. With these pressures in mind, how can the Arctic Council retain the virtues of a smaller organization and also embrace a philosophy of inclusivity?

Please join us for a lively conversation with Arctic luminaries Rosemarie Kuptana, Franklyn Griffiths, and Oran Young, moderated by Tony Penikett. This live Zoom event will take place on Thursday, Feb. 24th 2022 at 1:00-2:00pm PST / 4:00-5:00pm EST.
