Matt Druckenmiller reflects on the bigger picture of collaboration needed in the Arctic. He aims to provide people with the tools, information, and awareness to make informed decisions and adapt to the challenges they face. The vision guiding their efforts is to focus on values, such as food security, to steer research and collaborations in a meaningful direction. Matt sees organizations like ICC Alaska (Inuit Circumpolar Council–Alaska) as a role model in uplifting the values necessary for the Arctic’s well-being. He emphasizes the importance of staying true to guiding values amid potential conflicts with other interests like resource extraction, and he believes that the research community, when collaborating with Arctic peoples, can define these guiding values for the Arctic’s future.
