The Arctic Council will be chaired by Finland in 2017–2019. During this period the Lapland Arctic Council Host Committee will foster the local perspective by showcasing Lapland’s Arctic expertise and by providing information about the Arctic Council to the local people.
We are a regional cooperation network of diverse actors: universities, research and educational institutions, expert organizations, companies, cities, and municipalities.
During the chairmanship the Host Committee will promote Lapland's unique Arctic Expertise by organizing side events in connection with the Arctic Council meetings and other Arctic events taking place in Lapland.
If you will visit Lapland during the Finnish Arctic Council chairmanship, we will introduce you to the best Arctic solutions made in Lapland and offer the unique Arctic experiences of our wonderful region.
If you are planning to organize an Arctic meeting or conference in Lapland during this time, we will provide you good tips on what to see and do alongside your event.
