In the light of climate change, the Arctic region is facing big changes that force us to rethink our way of living, policy-making and working. How to do productive cooperation and find sustainable solutions to save our fragile Arctic, while still enabling life and economic activities in the region? We believe that the future is in the hands of the young generation. The Nordic Regional Youth Camp focuses on the challenges of the Arctic dimension. Leading specialists on the Arctic and influencing inspire and provide guidance, but it is up to our young Nordic participants to turn challenges into opportunities and set their message alight. Finland and Helsinki presents itself as the perfect arena, as the Finnish chairmanship of the Arctic Council is coming to its mid-term.
Our three-day youth camp YOUNG EYES ON SUSTAINABILITY IN THE ARCTIC DIMENSION has two separate programs:
a) Arctic challenges and policy-making program
b) Media and communication program
The Arctic challenges and policy-making program focuses on presenting recent outlooks on the Arctic region, sustainability, business opportunities and youth perspectives on the region, through prominent speakers. Participants will be divided into three teams to create a vision for the future:
– Sustainability and Environment in the Arctic
– Sustainable Business Opportunities in the Arctic
– Shaping the Future Generation in the Arctic
The conclusions of all three teams will be merged into a shared resolution, later communicated to decisionmakers, media and relevant networks.
The media and communication program focuses on how to get your voice and message out, how to communicate in the public sphere, how to influence, how to build a successful campaign, how to be a storyteller. The participants in the media and communication program will make communication strategies and concrete media material based on the debate and conclusions made in the other program of the camp. The program will feature high-level influencers as speakers and experienced trainers.
These two separate programs work together for a common goal. The media and communication program participants communicate and share material on social media from the youth camp and its visions, in addition to the shared resolution on a sustainable future in the Arctic.
