Winter School: A Sustainable Future for the Arctic (application deadline 8 December 2019)

Monday 3 - Friday 7 February 2020
Global warming is most prominent in the Arctic with visible changes in ice and snow and enormous challenges for ecosystems and people to adapt to the new situation. Loss of the Arctic as we know it, coincides with new development in this area on conservation, cooperation, governance and security.

Sustainable solutions require multidimensional knowledge and a prudent approach when coming from outside the Arctic.
