Georgina Gibson

“What drives me is that the work being done in Alaska and the Arctic is so new and can still prove very difficult, and there is still so much to learn.”

Anna Liljedahl

“If students find a topic that holds their interest and excites them, I‘d recommend they read a lot and seek out experts to talk to.”

Mary Ehrlander

“The Model Arctic Council 2016 will engage students from throughout the circumpolar north in tackling issues of urgent concern in the rapidly changing Arctic.”
