1. Consider the unique conditions and characteristics of pandemic management in the Arctic (past, present and future),
  2. Examine the impacts and lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and public health actions and activities in the Arctic,
  3. Share experiences and best practices from across the Arctic, with a priority on Indigenous Knowledge, Traditional Knowledge and experiences and lessons learned at the community level and/or
  4. Provide insights and advice that may inform pandemic preparedness and management and contribute to resilience in the Arctic.

Exploring these themes and issues will help promote capacity building and resilience in Arctic communities and enhance preparedness in the face of future challenges. We are particularly interested in papers and contributions that consider the unique health and social needs of Arctic inhabitants, including the value and relevance of Indigenous traditional practices (social, cultural, and economic) and knowledge in connection with these themes.

We also welcome proposals for short case studies, commentaries, stories, and other forms of artistic and cultural expression (750-1500 words) from experts and knowledge holders.
