The Community and Citizen Science in the Far North 2024 Conference is set for 17-18 April 2024. Exact agenda and times of the conference have yet to be determined.

The 2024 conference builds on the efforts from the first conference in 2021 and a subsequent webinar. The focus will be continuing to share, network, and discuss the various aspects of conducting community and citizen science research in the Arctic.

Before, during, and after the conference, we encourage you to join the online community, Connect the Arctic, to exchange ideas, start discussions, and network with others interested the Arctic. Updates about the conference will also be shared in the community as well as with anyone that has registered for the conference.
