PEI is a vibrant network promoting polar education and research to a global community. By fostering dialogue and collaboration between educators and researchers, PEI aims to highlight and share the global relevance of the polar regions with the broader community.
The University of the Arctic (UArctic) is a cooperative network of universities, colleges, research institutes and other organizations concerned with education and research in and about the North. UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and collaborative infrastructure that enables member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions. Through cooperation in education, research and outreach we enhance human capacity in the North, promote viable communities and sustainable economies, and forge global partnerships.
The UArctic magazine Shared Voices is printed annually.
OUR MISSION We are committed to the protection of Alaska’s natural wildlife for its intrinsic value, as well as for the benefit of present and future generations. We advocate for healthy ecosystems which are ethically and scientifically managed. We promote: Sustainable populations of all wildlife species in Alaska, including wolves, bears, moose and caribou. Balanced wildlife management, based on sound science and strong ethical/fair chase standards. Expansion of sustainable and diverse wildlife viewing opportunities. Protection and recovery of Alaska’s endangered species, such as Steller sea lions (western distinct population segment) and Cook Inlet beluga whales. Healthy coexistence between wildlife and humans in urban and rural communities. Preservation of important wildlife habitat throughout Alaska. Educational programs with a focus on preserving Alaska’s wildlife and wild places.
Climategreenland is the Government of Greenland’s website about climate change in Greenland. The site is intended to be a resource to help you find the people, the organisations or the information you are looking for. It also provides an overview of some of the ways in which Greenland is affected by a changing climate and how this is dealt with.
The site approaches climate change from a multidimensional perspective and hence includes knowledge and actors from a wide range of professional disciplines and backgrounds. In addition to presenting information about current climate research in Greenland, the site provides insight into Greenland’s past and present greenhouse gas emissions and its role in different international forums. Finally, you can find information about climate adaptation and some of the opportunities that arise with a changing climate.
The site is structured around four main themes (citizen, municipality, industry, education) each providing information and links to central actors in the field. The focal point is climate change in a Greenlandic context. As a result, the site does not provide general information about climate change or about Greenland, apart from what is indirectly or directly related to climate change and its effects.
Isaaffik is the Greenlandic word for gateway. Isaaffik Arctic Gateway is a user driven web platform supporting research and collaboration. Anyone engaged with Arctic research, education, infrastructure, and logistics may join Isaaffik.
Website includes upcoming events concerning Arctic research, logistics and education.
The Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) has been connecting Arctic research since 1988. ARCUS achieves our Vision and serves our Mission through the four Goals of networking, communications, education, and research community support & facilitation. Guided by our Values, we connect Arctic research across the boundaries of organizations, disciplines, geographies, sectors, knowledge systems, and cultures. Based in the United States, ARCUS serves a globally connected, diverse Arctic research community, with an emphasis on connecting U.S. researchers. We are supported by government agencies, foundations, and others who share our enthusiasm for connected Arctic research.
The Arctic research community advances understanding of the Arctic through science, Indigenous knowledge, technology, and education. ARCUS promotes the application of this knowledge to Arctic and global challenges, and helps the research community to address questions that require the collaborative skills and resources of scientists, engineers, educators, Indigenous knowledge holders, and others. To further advance a holistic understanding of the Arctic, ARCUS works collaboratively with other boundary-crossing organizations with shared goals and objectives, such as the U.S. Arctic Research Commission (USARC), the Polar Research Board (PRB), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the Arctic Institute of North America (AINA), the European Polar Board (EPB), the Arctic Council, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), the University of the Arctic (UArctic), and Polar Educators International (PEI).
It is the intent of ARCUS to enhance the engagement of Arctic Indigenous communities, organizations, and peoples in research, recognizing that much research occurs within Indigenous communities, on their land, and/or utilizes Indigenous knowledge; that Indigenous Knowledge holds its own methodologies, validation, and evaluation processes; the need for Indigenous community-driven research; and that Indigenous communities are a vital part of the ‘research community’. We will focus on institutionalizing intersectional engagement with a clear focus and extra effort. We also will be applying knowledge of the ethical ways of engaging this marginalized community and respectful language.
In 2001, the University of Manitoba, the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, and the Foundations for Health joined together to create the Centre for Aboriginal Health Research (CAHR). It replaced a research group known as the Northern Health Research Unit, which was created in 1986. CAHR, which became known as the Manitoba First Nations Centre for Aboriginal Health Research (MFN CAHR) in 2006, is known nationally and internationally for promoting research excellence through the support and development of partnership-based health research with First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and/or Indigenous communities in Manitoba, Canada, and the world.
In 2017 the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, under the Vice-Dean Indigenous portfolio, launched Ongomiizwin – Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing.
The institute brings together at the Faculty level three units that were formerly part of the Max Rady College of Medicine: the Manitoba First Nations Centre for Aboriginal Health Research, the Centre for Aboriginal Health Education and the J.A. Hildes Northern Medical Unit. These units have been renamed Ongomiizwin – Research, Ongomiizwin – Education, and Ongomiizwin – Health Services.
The Centre for Arctic Healthis located at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Public Health, University of Aarhus. The aims of the Centrefor Arctic Health are strengthening research in Arctic Health, increasing collaboration between national and international Arctic research organizations, increasing collaboration on environmental medicine in the Arctic, and participation in Arctic Health education programs.
