FRIENDS OF THE FAR NORTH EVENT SERIES
The Arctic Encounter’s Friends of the Far North event series and campaign aims to celebrate and support the shared interests and experiences between Arctic nations and strategic partners, and develop new relationships, partnerships, and friendships for the future. The Arctic Encounter co-hosted the first event of the series in Iceland in October 2018 at the Friends of the Far North: Alaska X Greenland convening in Reykjavík.
THE FRIENDS OF THE FAR NORTH AWARD
The Friends of the Far North campaign also recognizes key leaders and stakeholders at the flagship annual Arctic Encounter convening in the United States. In April 2019, the Arctic Encounter presented the first Friends of the Far North awards to U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Dr. Brendan Kelly, former Climate Advisor to President Barack Obama and current Executive Director of the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) organization at the 6th annual Arctic Encounter keynote dinner in Seattle, WA, USA.
