The Arctic Mayors forum
Unified decision making in the Arctic area
Arctic Mayor municipal leaders contribute the local knowledge necessary to make wise decisions in the Arctic region, providing a more direct conduit between local people and distant policy makers.
At the Arctic Mayors’ Forum (AMF) meeting of board members held online last Monday May 10th it was made clear that the AMF would like to urge the Arctic Council to introduce mechanisms to consult and involve local governments in the Arctic region. The municipalities deal with the consequences of climate change and implement green transition solutions and should therefore be a prime source of input for the Arctic Council and its working groups.
Arctic Frontiers 2021 in Tromsø will be held on-line February 1-4. Members of the AMF will play an important role in a side event which will take place on Thursday January 28.
