The Arctic Circle is designed to increase participation in Arctic dialogue and strengthen the international focus on the future of the Arctic. To this end, the Arctic Circle aims to create opportunities for everyone to attend different meetings, conduct their own networking and engage in one-on-one informal discussions.
The annual Arctic Circle Assembly has become the largest international gathering on the Arctic, attended by more than 2000 participants from 50 countries. The Assembly is held every October at the Harpa Conference Center and Conference Hall in Reykjavík, Iceland. In addition, the Arctic Circle organizes smaller forums on specific subjects, such as the 2015 forums in Alaska and Singapore, and the 2016 forums in Greenland and Québec.
The Arctic Circle is nonprofit and nonpartisan. Organizations, forums, think tanks, corporations, governmental bodies and public associations around the world are invited to hold meetings within the Arctic Circle platform to advance their own missions and the broader goal of increasing collaborative decision-making while maintaining their institutional independence.
