Arctic Virtual Forum

The goal of the Arctic Virtual Forum is to establish a permanent virtual conference that serves as a quasi-think tank and foresight group for the Arctic Council and other policy groups interested in Arctic issues. The Forum draws on the expertise represented by the network of conference participants to provide access to information and discussion about five critical issues in Arctic policy that have been addressed in previous conferences: Health, Security, Shipping, Governance, and Climate Chance.



ArtxChange is both a fundraising platform and a marketplace for art. The site raises money for innovative, socially beneficial projects called Sponsor Projects, which are chosen by the marketplace members and a selection board. The marketplace’s sales then raise money for the chosen Sponsor Project because upon uploading a piece, artists must indicate what portion (at least 25%) of each sale they wish to donate.
For shoppers, ArtxChange is a way to buy unique products, connect with emerging artists, and donate to a good cause. For sellers, it is a way to develop your reputation, help out a cause that you care about, and make a profit. It will also be a way for nonprofits to gain publicity and, most importantly, funds.
