Organizers announce the Week of the Arctic to take place 8-14 May 2017 in Fairbanks and Anchorage, Alaska. Events will include the Arctic Interchange 8-12 May 2017 in Fairbanks, Alaska and North by North 12-14 May in Anchorage, Alaska.

These events will coincide with the Arctic Council's Ministerial meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska on 11 May 2017.

Arctic Interchange will include a number of presentations, workshops, receptions, and facilitated policy discussions designed to highlight the key themes and accomplishments of the Arctic Council and broader Arctic efforts. Registration for Arctic Interchange is now open.

North by North will host a number of unique cultural activities to celebrate the state's Arctic, share that Arctic with community members, and attract visitors from other Arctic states to learn, exchange, and build. Together, these events form North by North, an introduction to and reclaiming of Arctic innovation, resilience and sustainability, driven by local and public participation spanning the circumpolar north.
