This site is designed for Arctic youth, with contributions from Arctic
youth. OOKPIK is your gateway to Arctic networks, knowledge, opinions and

Ookpik was created under the auspices of the Future of Children and Youth
of the Arctic (2005), which is an initiative of the Arctic Council
Sustainable Development Working Group, one of the five working groups of
the Arctic Council. It continues to be supported by Foreign Affairs
Canada, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada and the Walter and Duncan
Gordon Foundation. It is hosted and maintained by the International
Institute for Sustainable Development.

The Arctic Council members come from the eight circumpolar nations, as
well as from six indigenous groups. We invite you into the site to
discover more about youth in neighboring circumpolar countries and to
explore the opportunities and programs available to the youth of the
Circumpolar world. We hope it challenges you to think about ways to expand
circumpolar cooperation.
