What happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic
our youth mission
Young voices are essential to the climate movement. They bring the energy, the fight, and the grit to the conversation. They have the power to make those in power listen.
Arctic Basecamp aims to help young people level up their activism by offering tools, scientific information, and projects. Our resources can offer young activists and climate-interested individuals the boost they may need for their next steps.

Youth ambassadors at the world economic forum
We aim to “speak science to power” and encourage bold climate action, supporting youth at the forefront of the movement.
This started by Arctic Basecamp hosting Greta Thunberg’s first climate speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, 2019.
Since then, we’ve been empowering youth participation in global events to raise awareness of the global risks from Arctic change and highlight the need for scalable solutions to climate change.
In 2020 and 2022, we brought international youth climate delegations to Davos, including youth voices from USA, Greenland, Uganda, Brazil, Ecuador, India, Iran, and Ukraine.
Our youth ambassadors participated in a session at the 2022 World Economic Forum, called “Turning Words Into Action”, where they discussed the necessary actions from world leaders to reduce emissions and rejuvenate the natural world. Watch the livestream here.
In 2023, we brought a delegation of Youth Climate Ambassadors as well as Climate Science Ambassadors. Specialising in areas from the Arctic, to global risk, to healthcare, we covered a wide range of topics and industries. Watch this delegation speak on their hopes for the future here.
