ARE YOU 30 YEARS OLD or younger and passionate about life in the Arctic? Do you have a vision of what you want the Arctic to look like in 30 years—and what it will take to get there?
WWF’s Arctic Programme celebrates 30 years in 2022, and we want to hear how Arctic youth think their communities and surroundings may change in the next 30 years. We are looking for young people who call the Arctic home to contribute to a special 30th anniversary issue of The Circle.
The Circle aims to inform decision-makers, scientists and the public about the environmental and sustainability challenges facing the Arctic today—and those that will emerge in the future.
LOOKING FOR YOUTH CONTRIBUTORS
The Circle’s upcoming anniversary issue will focus on the concerns and topics that matter most to people living in the Arctic nations: Canada, Finland, Iceland, the US (Alaska), Denmark (Greenland), Sweden and Russia. We want to share the stories of Arctic youth who are seeing firsthand how the changes caused by the climate crisis affect their communities, livelihoods and environments.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We want to publish short articles (approximately 600 words) that:
- Describe how Arctic communities will change in the next 30 years.
- Suggest solutions to address the negative changes taking place.
- Share examples of specific projects or actions that are helping, or can help, to protect the Arctic.
- We would love to receive your photos or a videos to accompany your article (if you have them).
SHARE YOUR STORY IDEAS WITH US!
All submissions must be received by March 4, 2022. If your story idea is chosen, a member of The Circle’s editorial team will work with you to help you craft your article. What you say matters—so please share your vision for the Arctic of the future. Submit your idea here.

This past week, we have heard multiple voices about the ever-increasing bad business of investing in fossil fuels. If we are to limit the global temperature rise and halt the already devastating effects of climate change, a complete global energy system overhaul is required: away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy. This is especially relevant in the Arctic.
