Arctic and Sustainability

The core of Zelig is rooted in the Arctic and we believe that what happens in this region has global importance and impact.

Under pressure from the accelerated impacts of climate change, now more than ever cooperation is necessary to move the knowledge created in the scientific realm into effective policy implemented to facilitate sustainable development and environmental protection.

Our Arctic team is led by Patti Bruns, who has 15 years of experience working in the Arctic, first with the Government of Canada and then with the Arctic Council. Patti has a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing the people that live and work in the North.

Care must also be taken to listen closely to the Indigenous knowledge and local knowledge held by Arctic inhabitants when making decisions about the future use and protection of the pristine Arctic.
