AINA Postdoc attends Future Emerging Leaders Workshop.

AINA Postdoctoral Fellow Ravi Sankar was chosen as one of 16 Future Emerging Leaders to attend the Arctic Change-Global Challenge: Workshop for Emerging Leaders in Rovaniemi, Finland, during the last week of August 2017.

The workshop's aim was to increase the capacity of individuals who may become the next generation of global leaders to understand and act on the new security and governance challenges that are developing in the context of global environmental change. It brought together a small group of young professionals to use Arctic change as a starting point for defining what global security and governance might entail in the next 20-30 years and to explore their own roles in addressing the challenges that may arise.

The workshop, hosted by University of Lapland's Arctic Centre, Rovaniemi, Finland, was supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (Mistra), the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMFUS), the University of Lapland's Arctic Center, and the project Arctic Governance and the Question of Fit in a Globalized World funded by the Swedish Research Council Formas. Convener was Dr. Annika E. Nilsson, Mistra-Arctic Fellow at GMFUS and Senior Research Fellow at the Stockholm Environment Institute.
