The Arctic Circle is an open, democratic forum, and anyone with something to say can contribute to dialogue at the Assembly. Stand up to ask a world leader a question during plenary sessions, bring your innovative ideas to interactive workshops, or organize a session yourself.

The Arctic Circle is attended by heads of state and governments, ministers, members of parliament, officials, experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, indigenous representatives, environmentalists, students, activists, and others from the growing international community of partners and participants interested in the future of the Arctic.


While the plenary sessions are the responsibility of the Arctic Circle, the breakout sessions are organized by various participating partners in their own name and with full authority over the agenda and the choice of speakers. If you wish to submit a proposal, see for more details. Submission deadline: May 12.
