The International Glacier and Mountain Ecosystems Forum is an event that seeks to exchange experiences and knowledge about glaciers and mountain ecosystems, promoting opportunities for cooperation between public institutions, civil society organizations, business and academia, for the implementation of research on sustainable development of mountain populations.
The forum will be held from the 10th to 13th August, 2016, in the city of Huaraz, Ancash region, Peru.
The conference will address the "dynamic Arctic," including identifying emerging issues influencing Arctic policy discourse and framing them for consideration by policymakers. A common thread running through previous conferences has been the importance of sustaining the Arctic as a zone of peace and prosperity in a rapidly changing and often turbulent and unpredictable world.
Open to invited participants only.
The conference is co-sponsored by the East-West Center and the Korea Maritime Institute.
University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) seeks applicants for an Undergraduate Summer Field Course in High Arctic Environmental Change. The course will take place from 11 July to 6 August 2016 in Svalbard, Norway.

The 2016 Students on Ice Arctic expedition will be a profound hands-on experience for youth to expand their knowledge of the changing circumpolar world, foster a new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain the inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.
To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management, and ultimately to catalyze change. The Society for Conservation Biology's International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.
IMCCs are organized by the Marine Section of the Society for Conservation Biology.
