On 1 June 2022, OCTA participated at the Turning the ambition of the new EU Arctic Policy into a reality organized by the European Parliament intergroup SERICA, in collaboration with CPMR.
The event encouraged discussions on the potential and the challenges linked to the green transition and sustainable blue economy in the Arctic, as well as on the importance of increased interregional cooperation to maintain a peaceful Arctic.
Important discussions were also raised in the Panel regarding the implications for the Arctic of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The topics of livability in the arctic and how to encourage young people and women to stay in the Arctic were also discussed in depth.
