The European Union is inextricably linked to the Arctic region by a unique combination of history, geography, economy and scientific achievements. Three Member States — Denmark (Greenland), Finland and Sweden — have territories in the Arctic. Two other Arctic states — Iceland and Norway — are members of the European Economic Area. Canada, Russia and the United States are strategic partners of the EU. European Arctic areas are a priority in the Northern Dimension policy. Beyond areas of national jurisdiction, the Arctic Ocean contains parts pertaining to the high seas and the seabed managed by the International Seabed Authority.

Learn more about the Network of European Blue Schools

How are we connected to the ocean? All people on Earth are directly or indirectly connected to the ocean in a variety of ways: through what we eat, breathe and use, where we go on a holiday. The ocean is our planet's life support system - and it needs our protection. This Network of European Blue Schools aims to inspire teacher, school director or staff of education services, to challenge their students, from kindergarten, primary, lower and upper secondary, technical or vocational schools, to develop a “Find the blue” project that links them to the ocean or the sea. By successfully completing the project and sharing its results, schools will receive the European Blue School label.

Arctic indigenous peoples dialogue 2016

It specifically stated that "the Commission and the EEAS would step up their efforts to hold regular dialogues with indigenous peoples."
