The 6th Rovaniemi Arctic Spirit Conference takes place in November, 14–15 2023.
Rovaniemi Arctic Spirit Conference has been organized in Rovaniemi every two years since 2013. Event is organized by the City of Rovaniemi and the Arctic Centre at the University of Lapland together with various partners.
During the years, the Rovaniemi Arctic Spirit conference series has developed into Finland’s foremost Arctic event. The ambition has been to grow in quality and relevance, not in size, in order to offer meaningful Arctic discussions and meetings and thus spread the real Arctic Spirit of Rovaniemi.
In 2023 the theme for the Conference is “Towards New Horizons”. The changes in Arctic and Barents cooperation, due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine and changes in geopolitical reality, are high on the agenda especially on the first day of the conference. The second conference day will consist of parallel thematic sessions, including science related sessions focusing on climate, geopolitics, youth and new research openings.
