Arctic Futures 2050
Held in Washington D.C. in September 2019, Arctic Futures 2050 is a conference that brings together scientists, Indigenous peoples, and decision makers to explore the knowledge needed to inform decisions concerning the future of the Arctic. SOI will lead a delegation of 7 youth alumni from across the Canadian Arctic and around the world to learn, share and connect around the future of the Arctic. Delegation goals for alumni:
- Harness the conference as an opportunity for personal and professional development;
- Meaningfully engage in recommendation and decision making for the future of the Arctic alongside with scientists, Indigenous communities, youth, decision makers, etc;
- Gain exposure to an influential Arctic stakeholder that SOI has not worked with before;
- Meet a larger professional network and develop relationships with mentors;
- Participate in the opportunity to connect, reconnect and build bridges face-to-face with the SOI alumni community.
