Conferences​

The High North Dialogue conference is an annual conference that brings together major stakeholders concerned with Arctic development. The purpose of the event is to encourage and facilitate dialogue between stakeholders to promote sustainable development in the Arctic, as well as information sharing and discussion of best practices.

We are currently planning the conference for 2023, which will take place in Bodø on April 19 and 20. Stay tuned for announcements and the program!

Since 2007, the High North Dialogue conference series have brought together Arctic leaders – present and future – to discuss the opportunities for value creation in the High North in an international context. Set in Bodø – the second largest community in Northern Norway
and European capital of culture 2024 – the High North Dialogue conference will provide you with a different perspective on the future of the Arctic.
