Arctic Frontiers Student Forum
We are pleased to announce the Arctic Frontiers Student Forum (AFSF) 2022. The Student Forum is an initiative of Arctic Frontiers and the Russian Geographical Society. The goal of the Student Forum is to create a platform for young students to deepen their understanding of Arctic issues and to provide the space for an intergenerational dialogue. If you are a Bachelor or a Master student interested in Arctic issues, this is for you!
Arctic Frontiers Student Forum 2022
The AFSF2022 will gather Bachelor and Master students from Norwegian and Russian institutions in two hubs: one in Tromsø, Norway and another one in Arkhangelsk, Russia. Program content takes place both in Tromsø and in Arkhangelsk and is streamed to the respective hubs.
During the three-day forum, we will talk about issues regarding the Arctic, raise awareness, provoke discussion, inspire solutions, demonstrate innovative pursuits taking place in the Arctic, and discuss further opportunities for contribution from young students. This year’s AFSF will put a special focus on the importance of the Arctic Ocean. The program will include elements of the main Arctic Frontiers 2022 conference, as well as panel discussion, soft skill development workshops and cultural events.
Funding Opportunity and Participation
There is a funding opportunity for Norwegian and Russian Barents students to cover for the main conference registration and expenses related to travel, accommodation, and food. All applicants must be fluent in English.
NB! Due to the uncertainty related to the covid19 pandemic and recognizing the importance of an in-person conference for the Arctic community, the Arctic Frontiers 2022 conference, and therefore the Arctic Frontiers Student Forum, will be postponed until later in 2022. Stay tuned for further updates on the dates, program of the Student Forum and deadlines.
