As the circumpolar Arctic experiences unprecedented change, the number of researchers conducting northern studies has increased dramatically, and institutions across the globe look set to increase their investment in social and natural sciences research programmes based in Arctic communities and out on the land. Simultaneously, a significant rise in community-led research programmes has increased the amount of scientific work done by northern communities, for northern communities. Across these sectors of Arctic science, communication and engagement with stakeholders, traditional knowledge holders, the youth and key decision makers are recognized as key scientific research outputs. This session seeks to share success stories, tips and tricks, new ideas and creative and inspiring adventures in Arctic science communication, particularly the pivot to online sharing and community-focused initiatives in an unprecedented year for the Arctic research community.
