The University of Oulu is preparing to host a major scientific event next year, when the UArctic Congress 2018 is taking place 3-7 September, 2018. The congress will be arranged jointly with the University of Helsinki, the first four days of the congress taking place in Oulu and the final day in Helsinki.
The UArctic Congress 2018 themes revolve around the priorities of the Finnish chairmanship, including the goals of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and the Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The congress will be the second in the series that started in 2016, when the first UArctic Congress took place in St. Petersburg, Russia, hosted by the St. Petersburg State University. The congress gathered together 450 participants from the UArctic members and beyond. The congress of 2018 has already raised a lot of interest and it is anticipated to attract a similar amount of international participants. Save the Date and join this exciting meeting at Oulu and in Helsinki!
