Today, we are pleased to introduce a new media partner to the Eye on the Arctic project!
BarentsObserver.com is a respected online news service, already familiar to many of our readers, listeners and viewers.
Based in Norway and run by the Norwegian Barents Secretariat, they offer extensive coverage of the Barents region in both English and Russian.
Eye on the Arctic is managed by Radio Canada International and is the product of longtime cooperation between circumpolar media organizations (@alaskadispatch, @aprn, @radiosweden, @ylenews , and of course, @RCInet) and bloggers.
Since we went online in 2010, our goal has been to share stories from our respective regions with each other, in order to bring our listeners, readers and viewers a variety of stories, news and analysis from around the North.
We welcome the entire Barents Observer team to the project!
Today, we kick off our cooperation with two stories from Barents Observer: $600 million Kara Sea drilling could be shut down by @NilsenThomas and In time of sanctions, Prirazlomnaya seeks Russian suppliers by @AtleStaalesen
