Emerging Leaders is back for its 12th year! We are currently looking for the 2024 cohort of young Arctic leaders.
Emerging Leaders is aimed at professionals between the ages of 18-35 working on or in the Arctic. Professionals from all sectors from public, to academia, to business and NGOs are welcome.
The program will run from January 25th to February 1st, 2024. This year’s theme is coexistence in the Arctic. We hope to explore coexistence as countries race to assert sovereignty over Arctic waters, businesses vie for space in an increasingly competitive market, locals strive to be heard, and ecosystems face daring changes. How do interests intersect and what does a fair coexistence look like?
Join a group of 30 young leaders as they set out from Bodø, sailing to Lofoten, and then Tromsø while engaging in international and cross-disciplinary discussions on coexistence in the Arctic. Visit new sights, engage with local stakeholders, experience polar night, attend workshops, and participate in the Arctic Frontiers 2024 conference!
Application deadline is October 6th, 2023.
