UArctic

The AYN and the University of the Arctic (UArctic) collaboratively developed a youth plenary session for the upcoming UArctic Congress. The AYN administered an application process which brought in 60+ applicants representing all Arctic states, of which 40% were Indigenous, through the AYN’s extensive and diverse network. Though the Congress has been postponed due to COVID-19, the partnership has expanded to include the development of capacity-building workshops for youth, as well as a publishing agreement for The Exchange, the AYN’s media platform.

Arctic Council SDWG

The youth will help inform the work of the GEA Editorial Committee and their development of an Arctic Gender Equality report.

The Arctic Institute

The AYN has partnered with the Arctic Institute to expand the reach of youth-produced content from The Exchange, the AYN’s online media platform.
