Sustainable Futures North (SFN) is a three-year, NSF-funded project focused on developing a better understanding of the interactions among food, water, energy security, and natural resource development in Arctic and Subarctic rural communities. SFN is made up of researchers and professionals in Canada and the United States who have experience in fields from documentary filmmaking to engineering in northern regions, and who will be learning from rural residents in Bristol Bay, Kotzebue Sound, Baffin Island, and Nunavut about their specific education and human-resource needs.
