The UArctic Congress aim is to bring together institutional leaders, indigenous representatives, academics, scientists and students from around the Circumpolar North and beyond to engage with each other and promote cooperation in circumpolar science and higher education. Together with partners, policy makers and other actors, the UArctic Congress strives to take the Arctic agenda forward by creating and strengthening collaborations that produce new findings and solutions for the future of the Arctic.

This year the Congress is part of Iceland’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council and organized in conjunction with the Arctic Council Ministerial Meeting. A special focus will be on the Icelandic chairmanship's priorities, Arctic marine environment, climate and green energy solutions and people and communities in the Arctic.

Students are especially encouraged to participate and their participation is free of charge.
