Master global management at Nord University Business School
Arctic Frontiers Student Forum is now accepting applications for the Winter Event at the end of January for Bachelor and Master students.


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. 

The forum will kick off on the evening of the 31st of January and will last until the 3rd of February 2022. During these three days, 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. Russian students from the Barents Region should look out for guidelines on how to participate from their local university. 

Norwegian students from UiT the Arctic University of Norway, Nord University and the Sámi University for Applied Sciences, should submit a motivation letter (approximately 500 words), where they demonstrate their interest and enthusiasm for Arctic issues and research and why they should be selected. 

Please send your application to Naima El bani Altuna (Young Program Coordinator at Arctic Frontiers) via email no later than the 15th of December.
