Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The theme of the Arctic Frontiers Conference for 2011 was "Arctic Tipping Points", addressing how systems can reach a point of no return - be it natural, physical or social systems. All the presentations at the conference addressed this topic, as did the PhD Course that followed the conference.

Three amazing musicians accompanied the course to Lofoten, and created a 'theme song' for the conference. Michael Greenacre created the lyrics for "Tipping Me Softly" and his daughter Karolien Greenacre and their friend Damy preformed the music - joined by the participants of the course. To see the photo slideshow highlights and listen to the song - enjoy this video below!
