1. Save-the-Date
ICASS VII: Northern Sustainabilities
Prince George, British Columbia, Canada
22-26 May 2014

The International Arctic Social Sciences Association (IASSA) announces
the 8th International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS VIII).
It will be held 22-26 May 2014, at the main campus of the University of
Northern British Columbia in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.

ICASS VIII's theme is 'Northern Sustainabilities'. The plural is used to
underscore that 'sustainability' has social, cultural, economic,
political, and environmental dimensions; and that definitions of the
concept vary. Nonetheless, while debating specific definitions, most
would agree that working toward sustainable ways of living in the North
and on approaches to sustainable engagement with the North, are critical
both to the North's and to the world's future. Community sustainability
in the North, whether for small settlements or large urban
conglomerations, requires new models of food and energy security, and
access to employment, health care, and social and cultural services for
residents. The North is faced with demographic challenges to
sustainability. Appropriate governance regimes for renewable and
non-renewable resources underpin sustainable development.

Additional information, including a call for sessions and then a call
for abstracts, will be posted when available, at:
