The Arctic region is exceptionally vulnerable to climate change, with any alterations in the Arctic having a reverberating, global impact.
Norhern lights
The Northern Lights originate from the sun. Their presence plays an integral part in the stories and myths of the northern peoples. According to Finnish folklore, the Northern Lights are created from the sparks of fox’s tail as it runs across the northern fells.
Alkuperäiskansat
