On the occasion of the JUSTNORTH General Assembly 2023 in Madrid (Spain), we would like to invite you as stakeholders to the JUSTNORTH Conference on June 14-15, 2023.

Besides, we encourage you to take part in the activity “Youth Visions on Arctic Sustainability” Workshop (14th June). The event is designed as a space for Early Stage Researchers interested in Arctic issues of social and environmental sustainability to collaboratively reflect on the challenges faced by the region and on how to devise possible solutions. Participants are invited to email abstracts of 300-500 words describing the topic they will address in their paper, together with a short biography/motivational presentation of 200 words max. These documents should be sent to both This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots.

How to promote and ensure justice as well as social and environmental sustainability in the deployment of economic activities in the Arctic?

Papers should be clearly focused on one particular thematic that can include the following:

  • The current and potential place, role and impact of youth participation in Arctic decision-making processes
  • The relations between gender and sustainability issues
  • The question of intergenerational justice in the context of Arctic development
  • The interplay between Indigenous peoples, Arctic development and Arctic sustainability
  • Any of the economic sectors analysed by JUSTNORTH: transport (private and/or public; road, railway, maritime); energy (renewable and non-renewable); tourism; resources extraction (mining, oil, gas); fisheries; social development; traditional economies and livelihoods.
On the day of the event, selected participants will be given 5-10 minutes to present their initial ideas and/or draft. These presentations will be followed by discussion and by a workshop in which participants will have the opportunity to work with leading researchers from the JUSTNORTH team to develop and polish their papers. Final papers will subsequently be published in a collective publication.
