The ISG consists of appointees from our IASC partners. Members of the Steering Group are well qualified leaders representing a full range of scientific disciplines, knowledge systems, and Arctic regions. The SG includes representation from the Indigenous Peoples of the Arctic as well as a representative from the host country. It is tasked to identify and develop an overall conference goal, theme and agenda, sub-theme research questions, and mechanisms for post conference action and implementation. The SG will report to the IASC Executive Committee and our partner organizations on a regular basis between 2022 to 2025. The SG will have a Secretariat provided by IASC to assist in its function. The SG will collaborate closely with the Conference Host Committee
