The conference offered an opportunity to discuss how the perception of the periphery has changed, and initiated or accelerated changes, for example, in ways of working, living, providing services, and making decisions in the Northern Periphery and Arctic. The benefits of cooperation across Arctic and near-Arctic regions also emerged, showing how the exchange of knowledge and expertise between the regions plays a key role in building response capacity and preparedness for the future.

The NPA programme would like to thank all the colleagues, projects, and people involved in the preparation and realisation of this event, as well as the over 150 participants in Sligo and viewers online.
Although the NPA likes to experiment and push the boundaries of event formats, we look forward to meeting all our transnational partners again in a traditional physical conference at the first opportunity!
