PAME supports and works towards the Arctic Council Communication Strategy, which goals are to:
  • Strengthen the Arctic Council brand – reinforce perception of the Council as the preeminent international forum for addressing Arctic issues (relevant
  • Provide a “voice” for the Council on issues where it has achieved consensus – position the Council as an opinion leader on important Arctic issues (credible)
  • Highlight the many ways the Arctic Council contributes to positive outcomes in the Arctic, notably through the work of its subsidiary bodies (active)
  • Generate a positive narrative of international cooperation, sustainable development, and environmental protection that counters the popular but inaccurate narrative of conflict and a “rush to resources” in the Arctic
