“There is a great need to meet within the pan-Arctic cooperation. And after two years of pandemic, we want to spend our resources creating a physical meeting place”, says Arctic Frontiers Director Anu Fredrikson.
The administration of the Arctic Frontiers conference has worked with alternatives for weeks, however, the Board has decided that the best option is to postpone the conference until it is once again possible to meet across borders.
Given the current infection situation, organizing the conference scheduled for 31 January to 3 February 2022 would not be responsible. Arctic Frontiers will revert with new dates in the new year, according to a Tuesday press release.
“There is a great need to meet within the pan-Arctic cooperation. And after two years of pandemic, we want to spend our resources creating a physical meeting place”, says Director Anu Fredrikson.
“The Board has therefore decided to postpone rather than cancel”, she continues.
International meeting place in and about the Arctic

The theme of Arctic Frontiers 2022 is ‘Pathways’, and it is about the choices the Arctic is facing, with pressing global challenges.
