Alaska – creating the blueprint for a more just and prosperous future.
With our people, resources and potential, Alaska is poised to become the model for a sustainable future. Our rich cultural heritage and biodiversity, incredible carbon reserves, and abundant renewable resources offer untold opportunities.
Alaska – Outsized opportunity.
At nearly one-fifth the size of the U.S., everything in Alaska is outsized. Alaska has more coastline than the rest of the country combined, a third of the nation’s federal lands, more than half of its carbon stores, two-thirds of its fisheries landings, much of its potential freshwater, most of its largest intact ecosystems, and all of its Arctic territory. More Indigenous people reside here proportionally than in any other state.
But Alaska isn’t just outsized in its physical landscape. Like many low-population states, Alaska’s roughly 735,000 people have an outsized impact on national decision-making, with the same number of U.S. Senators as the country’s most populous states. As Alaskans wrestle with our future in a place that is warming at more than double the speed of the global average, our ability to transition to a sustainable future has importance not only for Alaskans but also for our country and the world.
