The purpose of the Student Forum program is to increase capacity and network amongst Arctic youth. Through the Student Forum the participants get the opportunity to build skills, partake in cross-cultural exchange and develop their own visions for the future of the region.
The Student Forum takes place in conjunction with the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø, Norway and conference attendance is included in the program. Additionally, the program includes activities such as a group project, workshops and career mentoring.
In 2024, there will be opportunities for 10 students from Northern Norway and Northern Finland to participate. Participation includes funded travel, accommodation and food while in Tromsø. The Student Forum will take place from Sunday the 28th of January until Friday the 2nd of February 2024. Both the 28th of January and 3rd of February will be travel days.
