AYN Working Groups
AYN Working groups are topic-specific communities
for youth engaging in the issues of today.
Learning & Sharing

Working Group members work together to learn, share their experiences, and produce resources to inform others on the critical aspects of their topic. Discussion groups, webinars, conference sessions, toolkits, media content and more: working groups are on it!

Direct Engagement

Through collaborations with prominent organizations and institutions, AYN Working Groups engage directly with the processes shaping the North, participating in consultations, research projects, and advisory councils.

Explore the Working Groups:

Oceans

The AYN Oceans Group is a youth-led platform for young people across the world to discuss and collaborate on ocean governance. This year’s main topic will be the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction, which is an upcoming international agreement for conservation in the high seas, and is currently being negotiated at the United Nations.

The application period for the Oceans Working Group is now closed. Interested in collaborating with us? Get in touch.

Arctic Law and Politics

The Arctic Law and Politics International Discussion Group brings together interested youth, scholars, and practitioners to discuss contemporary legal and political issues relating to the Arctic region. It is meant for those that are new to studying the Arctic region and experts alike, because a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds enhances the quality and scope of discussion.

Join now!

Northern Economy

The Arctic holds unique opportunities and risks for economic development, and climate change and social transformations are quickly altering the realities of the northern economy. Youth can play a leadership role in building a sustainable, safe, and just economy in the north.

This group is still under development. Get in touch to be part of the process!
