Interdisciplinary Seminar Series on Climate, Energy and Sustainability: Arctic Special Edition

Melting ice

The Climate Arctic Governance research network (CArGo) is organizing a special edition of the Interdisciplinary Seminar on Climate, Energy and Sustainability with focus on the Arctic. The event takes place in a hybrid form on the 8th of December 2023 at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, and on Zoom. This seminar follows the success of the last twelve editions, which have been taking place at the University of Copenhagen since June 2019.

The seminar offers an opportunity to students and junior researchers to present their work – bachelor thesis, master thesis and other research projects – on Arctic climate, energy, and/or sustainability-related topics, and receive feedback from peers and participants.

Participation is open to all disciplines and universities in Denmark and beyond. We especially encourage those looking for inspiration for their research projects and theses or looking to connect with a broad network of academics and professionals with similar interests and expertise to join. After the seminar, there will be an opportunity for informal networking among the participants.
