About The Circle
The Circle is distributed free to around 3,000 arctic stakeholders worldwide, including government officials and publicly-elected representatives, indigenous organisations, conservationists, scientists, NGOs, libraries, and business executives. The goal is to inform decision-makers, scientists and the interested public about arctic environmental and development issues.
The name is an obvious reference to the Arctic Circle, but is also suggestive of all of the systemic linkages in the Arctic, circular self-perpetuating processes that keep the Arctic in balance. Many of these systems are now being destabilized by threats such as climate change. We hope that this publication will bring forward ideas on how to address the threats, and keep the Arctic in balance.
