Student Day

Please join us for the Arctic Change 2008 International Student Day, an event that is expected to be one of the largest international gatherings of students engaged in Arctic research. Organized by the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA), the event will be held on December 9, 2008 at the Centre des congrès de Québec preceding Arctic Change 2008.

Student Day will provide an exciting opportunity for students from around the world to build and strengthen relationships, partake in dynamic discussions and learn from each other’s research experiences. Student Day is open to all interested individuals and we welcome the participation of students, scientists and representatives from northern communities, Inuit organizations, government and industry.

The ArcticNet Student Association is delighted to welcome Mary Simon as the invited keynote speaker for the Arctic Change Student Day. Mary Simon is the President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and she was the Ambassador for Circumpolar Affairs at the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade from 1994 to 2003. Ms. Simon has devoted her life's work towards gaining further recognition of Aboriginal rights and to achieving social justice for Inuit and other Aboriginal peoples nationally and internationally.

Breakout Sessions

During the afternoon of Student Day, breakout groups will be formed to discuss various topics related to arctic research. This year, there will be five topics and students are strongly encouraged to register in advance for one of the five groups. A maximum of 80 places is available in sessions 1 and 2, and there are 40 places in sessions 3, 4 and 5, so don’t wait to register! The ASA also welcomes ArcticNet Network investigators, partners and guests to participate.
