Here in Tromsø, we are lucky to have a yearly conference about the north: Arctic Frontiers. This conference attracts high-level politicians, shows the newest research from around the Arctic, and has a lot of focus on outreach to the younger generations. In this blog post you can read about the activities that we at APECS, the Association for polar early career scientists, were organizing during the conference together with Arctic Frontiers Young and Nordnorsk Vitensenter (local science centre). In addition to this, me and many of my colleagues were giving science talks during the science part of the conference – check pdfs behind this link! It was an interesting week!
