The Thematic Network on Bioregional Planning for Resilient Rural Communities is an interdisciplinary platform by which institutions and local communities can leverage bioregional planning strategies and tool kits to support resilient rural communities in the North.

The network of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners is committed to understanding the role that bioregional and systems strategies can play in supporting rural Northern communities activating those strategies in an intentional, place-based way to promote resilience in the face of climate change and other disruptive events.

The Network Working Meeting will be an opportunity to share projects’ development and ideas, and to discuss student and indigenous community engagement. UArctic members and non-members are welcome to join the network. 

The event will have a hybrid form, happening simultaneously at the Arctic Circle Assembly at Rima A in Harpa, and on Zoom

UNE North at the University of New England holds the Chair of the Thematic Network, whose other members are SustainaMetrix, University of Highlands and Islands (Scotland), Agricultural University of Iceland, University of Tyumen (Russia).
