UArctic Chief Communications Officer met with Rintala-Gardin Bruns, who brings a wealth of circumpolar cooperation experience to the Arctic Mayors Forum. The group discussed multiple avenues of possible cooperation, including linking UArctic Thematic Networks and Arctic city governments to research issues such as youth, food secrurity, employment opportunities, arts and design, energy and transport.
