FOR SCHOOLS

Polar Aspect’s NORMAC for schools is the only stand-alone secondary-school Model Arctic Council in the world today.  At this innovative, three-day conference hosted by Norwich School, pupils play the roles of diplomats from Arctic states and, unusually in model diplomacy, Indigenous peoples.  Delegates benefit throughout from the advice and guidance of an Arctic expert and educator, and they also enjoy special social events at which to cement new friendships.

THE ARCTIC

As the global climate changes, the Arctic has become one of the most important regions on the planet.  It is also one of the most fascinating, where questions of environmental protection, sustainable development and ancient culture overlap in complex ways.  The Arctic Council brings together not only the countries of the Arctic, but also its Indigenous peoples, in order to reach consensus on difficult issues.  These issues challenge not only the Arctic itself, but also the world as a whole.
