FOOD SECTOR

This summer youth program empowers the next generation through hands-on experiences in entrepreneurship and food product development, fostering innovation and leadership skills. With a focus on creativity and collaboration, arts-based approaches inspire young minds to shape a brighter future with the food sector.

A new food sector entrepreneurship program is starting up this summer in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In the coming months, a small group of youth artists studying entrepreneurship with the non-profit organization Niriqatiginnga are designing, marketing and selling a special edition line of homemade jams for the fall and holiday season.

This opportunity would not be possible without support from a number of organizations.

The congress takes place from 29 May to 3 June 2024 in Bodø, Norway, hosted by Nordland Research Institute and Nord University. An extraordinary illustration of Arctic co-operation, we bring these three conferences together for the first time in Bodø (European Capital of Culture 2024). 

The 2024 Arctic Congress includes high-level plenary sessions, several parallel sessions, network activities, and social and cultural events. This brings excellent opportunities for researchers, policymakers, businesses, and students to increase their connectivity and knowledge exchange on Arctic issues. IASSA and UArctic will also hold their assemblies.
