About the study

This knowledge brief has been produced as part of research conducted during three fieldwork visits in Greenland and the Nordic Arctic. The interview data is based on four qualitative interviews and one group questionnaire with young people in the age group 18-35 years old. We chose this age range as it encompasses different phases of education, work, and settling for this group, all of which have relevance for community planning. The underlying hypothesis for this brief is that youth participation is critical for long-term resilience and mitigation efforts in Arctic communities.
