The APECS Nordic Workshop brought together approximately 60 key stakeholders including mentors and experts and Early Career Researchers and Indigenous peoples, youth and local expert representatives among indigenous peoples, senior scientists, key representatives of international organizations and other media. APECS worked closely with existing partners such as IASC, Arctic Council Indigenous Peoples’ Secretariat and the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat to identify and invite workshop participants and mentors. Travel funding to attend the Workshop was available through various sponsors.

The 2-day workshop included plenary sessions, breakout sessions, panel discussions, and group work. The goal of the workshop was to discuss and develop materials that educate and inform about the interactions between ECRs and Indigenous peoples in Nordic regions.  

Please check this page for highlights about the APECS Nordic Workshop.  Once the results from the workshop have been compiled and published, they will also be made available here.
