The goal of the Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) is to provide a discussion forum for graduate students undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines throughout the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The format is designed to encourage new climate researchers to become acquainted with the details of diverse areas of study and to place their own work in the broader context of the climate research community.

Climate Change and the Future Generations

Where: 
Rovaniemi, Finland

The Rovaniemi Arctic Spirit Conference, fourth in a series, focuses on climate change in the Arctic, especially from the point of view of young people. The conference wants the voices of the future generations to be heard.

We no longer need to prove that Arctic climate change is a fact. Instead, we need to talk about what it really means for the future. For this reason, young people have an important role in the conference, says Markku Heikkilä, Head of Science Communications of the Arctic Centre, who coordinates the event preparations.

The CATCH mission is to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research within the international community, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth. Cold regions include areas which are seasonally or permanently covered by snow and ice, from the high mountains to the polar ice sheets and sea ice zones as well as regions where ice clouds that undergo chemistry are found.

Meeting website and registration page will be open 1 July 2019 - 11 October 2019.
