Organizers of the Arctic Climate Change, Economy, and Society (ACCESS)
and Arctic Resilience Report (ARR) summer school announce a call for
applications. The course, organized jointly by the Beijer Institute of
Ecological Economics (ACCESS partner) and the Stockholm Resilience
Centre (ARR partner), will be held 22-26 September 2014 at the Royal
Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, Sweden.

The summer school is open for about 20 participants from natural and
social sciences including economics, and is intended for graduate level
and above. Its aim is to provide the students with an opportunity to
learn about different aspects of Arctic resilience with focus on Arctic
climate change, as well as changes in the economic sectors of shipping,
tourism, fisheries, oil and gas exploitation, and governance. Experts
will give insights into recent developments and present their view on
the opportunities and risks connected to the changes in the climate
system and associated impacts in the economic sectors.

The course will consist of a series of lectures and group assignments
focused on analyzing recent research developments regarding the direct
and indirect impacts of climate change in the Arctic Ocean, and how to
synthesize these results using different tools like marine spatial
planning, resilience assessment, and integrated indicators. The students
will have the opportunity to present their results to a group of experts
and publish the results of their work in the ACCESS Newsletter.

There will be no fee for participation in the summer school. Costs for
meals, accommodation, and transport will have to be covered on the
students. Additional information on the school as well as suggestions
for accommodation and transport will be updated regularly and sent to
the participants.

Applications should be sent to Daniel Ospina (
stating your name, current studies program, and a brief statement of
motivation for participating in this course. Deadline for application is
15 August 2014, however it may close earlier if enough candidates apply.
