Eye on the Arctic: a Unique Partnership

It doesn’t happen every day. – Media collaborating with other media, across borders, across continents, across latitudinal lines.

This project is unique – and the experience of working on it is also unique. A morning conversation with Finland to check if the FTP video transfer was successful; an afternoon email on a story submission from Russia, a quick discussion on logistics with Iceland, and a discussion on translation and voiceovers with Norway.

The stories are unique too. Circumpolar nations differ in culture, values and economic situation. The stories each country provides allows us to glimpse into how climate change is affecting them, and their nation as a whole.

Online, we find more and more people enjoying sharing content, creating a blog to discuss a particular topic, gathering together folks interested in a particular topic to debate and discuss, to contribute and share their opinions. The Eye on the Arctic web project is created with this spirit; bringing together a multitude of voices from many different points of view – all focused on climate change and how circumpolar countries are affected. After all, these countries are the first to feel the affects.

We hope you enjoy this collection of media from across the Arctic circle. We’ve certainly enjoyed creating it.
