1. Final Conference – let’s meet in Paris
The EDU-ARCTIC Consortium invites you to participate in the final conference summarizing our project on May 23-24, 2019. The first day will be held at the scientific centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Paris, the second at UVSQ’s Faculty Observatory of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines in Guyancourt, in the western Parisian region. Confirmed key-note speakers include Terry V. Callaghan, Professor of Arctic Ecology at the University of Sheffield and one of the laureats of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to IPCC and Al Gore.
The programme will offer a number of high-profile key-notes by some leading actors in the field, presentations of the project results, panel discussions as well as hands-on EDU-ARCTIC activities and a guided tour of UVSQ’s atmosphere science laboratory. Read FULL PROGRAMME and REGISTER (for 1st and 2nd day separately). We’ll be very happy if you can share your EDU-ARCTIC experience and take part in our poster session. See you in Paris!
2. EDU-ARCTIC dissemination: prestigious events in Valencia and Cambridge
We couldn’t miss the opportunity to present EDU-ARCTIC at 13th INTED conference - one of the largest international education conferences for lecturers, researchers, technologists and professionals from the educational sector, held 11-13 March in Valencia, Spain. During this event, that brings together more than 700 delegates from 80 different countries, EDU-ARCTIC was presented in a very special way – by Paul Eric Aspholm - our Norwegian colleague from NIBIO and Francisco José Gómez Senent a teacher, who won Arctic Competition 2018!
Also, we’ll be honoured to offer our project tools to engaged teachers interested in polar topics during the 4th biennial workshop of Polar Educators International (PEI), organised with support from the International Arctic Science Committee. We hope to meet some of you there (8-11th April, Cambridge, United Kingdom).
