For six weeks over summer, the International Summer School at the University of Oslo hosts the course "A Changing Arctic". This Master's level course consists of a series of lectures, both by UiO staff and external guests, covering a wealth of political, social, legal, and natural science issues. This year 14 students from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities will join the course. As part of their final assessment each student will address the following question "Boom or bust? What an ice-free Arctic will mean for future generations". They will be be divided into either the "Boom" or "Bust" category and receive 10 minutes each to both deliver their perspectives (8 minutes) and answer questions (2 minutes).

The Science Library and the "A Changing Arctic" course leaders welcome you to join this event.
