Organizers of the Arctic Climate Change, Economy, and Society (ACCESS)
cross-sectoral summer school announce that applications are now being
accepted. The school will be held 23-27 September 2013 in Bremen,
Germany.

ACCESS is a European Project supported within the Ocean of Tomorrow call
of the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme. Its main objective
is to assess climate change impacts on marine transportation, tourism,
fisheries, marine mammals, and the extraction of oil and gas in the
Arctic Ocean. ACCESS is also focusing on Arctic governance and strategic
policy options.

The summer school is open for approximately 20 participants from
science, business, and public administration students, and is intended
for graduate level and above. The aim of the summer school is to provide
the students an opportunity to learn about the different aspects of
Arctic climate change, changes in the environment, the economic sectors
of shipping, tourism, fisheries, oil and gas exploitation as well as
governance. Experts from all of these fields will give an insight into
recent developments and present their view on chances and risks
connected to the changes in the climate system and associated changes in
the economic sectors.

The students will be able to work in small groups on topics related to
cross-sectoral questions in the context of Arctic climate change,
economy and society. They will present their results to a group of
experts and are provided with the opportunity to publish them in the
ACCESS Newsletter.

There will be no fee for the participation in the summer school. Costs
for meals, accommodation and transport will have to be covered at the
students' own expenses. The course is organized and hosted by the ACCESS
partners Alfred Wegener Institute--Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine
Research (AWI) and Ocean Atmosphere Systems GmbH (OASys) and
co-sponsored by the Helmholtz Graduate School for Polar and Marine
Research (POLMAR). Decisions on the acceptance of participants, together
with additional information on the summer school as well as suggestions
for accommodation and transport will be made available by 10 August 2013.

Application deadline: 4 August 2013.
