The Arctic has warmed three times quicker than the planet as a whole, and up North the effects of the climate changes are visible already today. How can Arctic societies be agents of change in the green transition? How do Arctic societies adapt to climate change? And what pathways are possible for sparsely inhabited areas with vast distances and a harsh climate? In short: What could Arctic societies look like in 2050? This is discussed by Avijâja Jepsen, Special Consultant to Naalakkersuisut – Government of Greenland, Ola Elvestuen, member of the Norwegian Parliament and the Standing Committee on Energy and the Environment, and Sara Olsvig, International Chair of Inuit Circumpolar Council, in this special episode of the Nordic Talks podcast, recorded at COP27 in Egypt and moderated by André Jamholt, Senior Advisor at the Nordic Council of Ministers.
