Analyses about sustainability in the Arctic
Sustainability and sustainable development are far from new concepts worldwide. With the increasing international focus on the Arctic, sustainability and sustainable development also become priority on the agenda in the Arctic political and business environments.
Arctic Consensus has a desire to work with sustainability and seek knowledge about what sustainability is in an Arctic context. Therefore, in the spring of 2021, Arctic Consensus has entered into collaborations with various actors that have contributed to different insights and analysis on sustainability in the Arctic. In this regard, researchers from Tantlab at Aalborg University (AAU) and the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), respectively, have in two research projects investigated what sustainability in the Arctic can cover.

This is but some of the experiences the participants in Nordic Arctic Rehabilitation have made through, among other things, digital employee exchanges. The second year of this three-year project have recently been concluded, and the Nordic and Arctic network has been strengthened trough the collegial sparring, which the project has facilitated.
