International School on INtegrated Environmental Studies in the Arctic (INES)
with respect to climate changes
INES plan of fall webinars 2020, 28 September – 2 October 2020

As we decided to postpone the in-person school till the second half of February 2021 we decided to provide you with an online school during the planned school for 2020. We will prepare a number of open webinars for you.

We hope that this online edition International School on INtegrated Environmental Studies in the Arctic (INES) with respect to climate changes, as online seminars, will provide an interdisciplinary platform for discussions of these challenging issues. We also hope that our webinars will facilitate the exchange of information among users from different parts of the world, who care about our environment and Arctic itself.
