The society is facing multidisciplinary challenges, such as climate change, that require new education strategies. Traditional discipline oriented sectoral approach is not enough, but multidisciplinary approach combining knowledge from different disciplines and penetrate though all levels of society is needed. The sessions calls educations working with formal university degree education or informal education and outreach to the wider public or a combination of these.
The suggested cross-thematic session would combine aspects related to formal and informal education in Arctic topics and themes on different levels, and outreach activities related to Arctic studies.
We aim to share insights on what to do or what not to do, gather best practices on multidisciplinary education and strengthen the science education and outreach in the Arctic.
