This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book offers various perspectives on Renewable Economies in the Arctic and how these forms of economy are being supported scientifically, economically, socially, and politically. It explores digital creative entrepreneurship as it is impacted by data connectivity and communication infrastructure in remote communities of the North American Arctic. The book then examines the impact of creative industries on renewable economies in the Arctic. It also explores the various ways tourism has developed, and continues to develop, in the Arctic. The book reviews the role of the social economy in Nunavut, Canada. It then argues that smaller institutions of higher learning within the Arctic must play a significant role in tackling the issues facing the region in a more practical sense. The book examines how climate change has spurred projects in Arctic countries to shift to low-carbon renewable energy sources.
