The 2019 magazine looks at impact from various perspectives: through the eyes of a funder, experiences of several UArctic Thematic Networks, and our collaboration with other Arctic actors and organizations. We also showcase different kinds of partnerships that our member institutions have and what the benefits of such collaborations are. In addition, the magazine features pieces from students who share their Arctic experiences and journeys and reflect on what role UArctic has had in creating those.

The magazine is officially launched at the meeting of the Council of UArctic which takes place in Stockholm, Sweden, September 18–20, 2019.

You can read Shared Voices 2019 as individual articles or in your browser via Issuu, or download the entire magazine as a PDF.
