The Arctic region is facing a rapidly changing landscape as cascading climate impacts intensify. An interconnected series of challenges has reshaped the region in unprecedented ways. As temperatures rise, the ice cover and weather patterns of the Far North change, disrupting fragile ecosystems and affecting human settlements.

Building on the premise of a future ice-free Arctic, our simulations explore possible challenges and tensions anticipated to arise in the region with regards to international, economic, social and environmental security.

Participants take on the roles of different policy makers, scientists, activists, and business people, faced with a series of dramatic events. 

You can explore stories from the Arctic Future simulation in the interactive module.
