In this issue of The Circle, we bring you a range of voices and stories from different fields and areas of the Arctic.
Climate change is pushing the world into an unknown state. That means we need to push ourselves to create new coalitions and ways of cooperating among researchers, civil society, governments and the public to openly discuss our options, explore the trade-offs, and find a sustainable way forward. We will have difficult conversations about controversial solutions and may need to establish new governance structures as a result.
