Our 7-day program offers participants the opportunity to study climate change from scientific and indigenous perspectives. Scientific fieldwork will introduce you to the practical issues related to climate change research, while lectures by members of the indigenous community will introduce you to the ethical issues related to climate action in Iceland.
Expert researchers from the University of Iceland and industry professionals will discuss Iceland’s climate models, carbon management systems, and renewable technology resources. You’ll learn about, and be part of discussion for, sustainable solutions to prevent the negative impact of climate change with relation to: arctic air pollution, melting permafrost, thinning of ice sheets, and glacier retreat.
