Message from the Chair of the Northern Forum
In 2021, the Northern Forum celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Lapland was elected to fulfill the responsibilities of the Chairmanship from April 2021 until April 2023 in the Northern Forum XIV General Assembly held in Naryan-Mar, Nenets Autonomous Okrug in April 2021.
