Sustainable development is a major challenge of our age. In 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, the concept of global development named “sustainable development”, derived from the Brundtland Report, was officially acknowledged; it can be classified as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations”. In 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals and which implementation should involve not only governments but also transnational companies, charity foundations, community, NGOs and academia worldwide. Essentially, sustainable development implies equilibrium between the economic, environmental and social fields of human activity.
Over its history of almost 30 years, the Northern Forum has implemented numerous projects working for the socio-economic development of the regions and organized hundreds of events. The organization’s General Assembly is held biannually, where the general issues of the regions and business partners’ collaboration are addressed in addition to the organizational ones. Lately, the practice of holding the Northern Forum Governors’ Summit to identify the priority areas of cooperation for the short-term has been introduced. 10 working groups have been set up to launch project activities in the areas of cooperation.
The goal of the Northern Sustainable Development Forum is to bring together the most prominent experts of the circumpolar and Asian countries for future project activities. Yakutia can become a bridge joining the Arctic and Asia. The participants of the Forum will represent various fields of expertise: academia, officialdom, community service and business.
