Arctic Media World Congress in Salekhard

The International Circumpolar Mass Media Congress “Arctic Media World” dedicated to the anniversary of formation of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, is organised in Salekhard, Russia, from 9th to 11th of December. More than 200 representatives of the media community based in circumpolar territories will participate in the event. Journalists from seven countries (Denmark, Iceland, Canada, Finland, Norway, the United States of America and Sweden) and eight Arctic regions of the Russian Federation will be united in one venue in Yamal.
Dmitry Yagodin and Lauri Lähteenmäki from our team are taking part in the congress.

The Congress is aimed to involve representatives of arctic mass media in the discussion of urgent problems of the arctic development with the government and public, to share experience, to build relations and partnership in coverage of different topics of the Arctic agenda between journalists worldwide.

The focus of the Congress is to show the connection between such processes as the exploration of Yamal and the preservation of national culture of indigenous peoples of the North. That’s why on the first day of the program a daylong tour of the settlement Sabetta was provided. Guests visited its International airport and the seaport of Sabetta considered to be a key object of the Northern Sea Route; existing produce volume of the plant “Yamal-Liquefied Natural Gas” will be observed; the Arctic LNG project was presented.
