Megatrends

image of Megatrends

The current pace of global change has already had a decisive impact on the Arctic. To understand the current and likely future situation in the Arctic it is important to acknowledge the pre-conditions, challenges and tendencies at work here. Some of these developments should be characterised as megatrends because they overarch and impact on everything else. They are trends deemed so powerful that they have the potential to transform society across social categories and at all levels, from individuals and local-level players to global structures, and eventually to change our ways of living and thinking.

Perspectives

The complexity and rapidity of the social, economic, legal and geopolitical changes that are taking place in the Arctic region requires substantial international efforts to share stewardship and concern for this ecologically fragile area which retains a vital importance for all residents of the North, the many Arctic and non-Arctic stakeholders and for the globe more generally.
