Trent University, one of the Læra Institute's university sponsors, is delighted to announce the second Scotland Model Arctic Council (SCOTMAC 2), taking place 10-12 March 2023 at Glasgow Caledonian University in the heart of the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Registration is now officially open, and undergraduate students from any university in the world are eligible to participate. Students from Trent University, as well as the universities of the Scottish-Arctic Network—Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow School of Art, Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, and the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Highlands and Islands, St Andrews and Strathclyde—are especially encouraged to take part.
SCOTMAC 2 features expert teaching and guidance from Arctic specialists, three days of simulated Arctic diplomacy at which to hone valuable speaking and consensus-building skills, and social events at which to build lasting friendships with fellow students from universities in Scotland, the rest of the UK, and beyond. SCOTMAC 2 is one of the few Model Arctic Council conferences in the world today designed with undergraduates in mind. It is open to students studying any subject.
SCOTMAC 2 is an educational initiative of Polar Aspect and the Scottish-Arctic Network, hosted in March 2023 by Glasgow Caledonian University in collaboration with Trent University, with funding from the Scottish Government Arctic Connections Fund.
