The Arctic Sustainability Lab

The Arctic is facing tremendous changes through rapid warming and the prospective increase in resource exploitation, commercial activities, globalization and change within social frames. This lab commends that a science is needed that addresses the sustainability challenges arising from global changes by focusing on ecosystems and the welfare of the people living in the Arctic.

This lab collates sustainability research initiatives of relevance for Arctic changes, including natural and social sciences as well as collaborative team sciences involving non-experts in the research processes. The overall goal is to emphasize and explore how to strengthen Arctic sustainability in the present and future.
